The Crownsmen Show featured Forrest Sim, the founder of Enhanced Scanning, a company that specializes in using advanced technology to locate and scan things that may not be visible to the naked eye. Forrest started Enhanced Scanning almost exactly four years ago and since then, the company has been providing services such as utility locating and concrete scanning using ground-penetrating radar and other technologies.
Forrest chose the name “Enhanced Scanning” very intentionally, as he wanted to move beyond just traditional utility locating and concrete scanning services and be able to find and scan things that in some cases you can’t see, such as underground objects and things above ground. Enhanced Scanning uses various tools like drone photogrammetry and terrestrial lidar to find and scan things for their customers. They mostly work in the AEC industry (architecture, engineering, and construction) and Southern California, but they will travel anywhere if the project is right.
One of the main goals of Enhanced Scanning is to prevent accidents and errors in construction projects. While some people may still try to do construction projects without services like Enhanced Scanning, in most cases it is mandatory in the US to call 8-1-1 before breaking ground on a project. This service locates public utilities, but Enhanced Scanning picks up where the 8-1-1 service leaves off and finds any other active or abandoned private utilities that may be present.
Overall, Enhanced Scanning is a valuable service that helps ensure the safety and accuracy of construction projects by using advanced technology to locate and scan things that may not be visible to the naked eye.
