Our Story

Advanced Non-Destructive Inc. (ANDI) is Newfoundland and Labrador’s homegrown premier non destructive testing and service provider, and we are just getting started. ANDI has grown from a thermal imaging company to a non destructive technical service company offering the latest non destructive technologies to companies not only in Newfoundland and Labrador but across Canada. 

Traditional structure and site analyses rely on destructive methods, which can have unintentional consequences like damages, injuries, or worse.   Companies and workers using destructive methods are going in blind without information about vital or unsafe utilities, and other structures that lurk beneath the surface waiting for the uninformed. These types of unintentional events can be very costly in time and money and can lead to unsafe conditions.  ANDI’s non destructive technologies can reduce risk by providing stakeholders with both quantitative (images) and qualitative (data) analysis.  Our clients gain vital information on the structure to plan their projects more safely and efficiently.

ANDI has demonstrated its value by helping clients ensure safety and make the best use of their resources by avoiding costly mistakes.  We value our clients and continue to develop our capacity and services to support their changing needs.


Our Specialties

Concrete Scanning

Our concrete scanning services help clients ensure subcontractors are following structural plans and mapping any deficiencies. With non destructive scanning, ANDI has helped contractors keep buildings – including schools and other structures – safe by providing detection and mapping of concrete and masonry reinforcements. We provide clients with crucial information that lets them know when they need to cut, core, or trench concrete structures.  We’ve conducted analysis on buildings, pads, dams, towers, vaults, and much more. Whether it’s new construction or refurbishing, ANDI can help.

Utility Detection

We now offer two categories of utility detection services: Detection and Mapping, and Location and Marking.

Our detection and mapping services let us support clients such as utility companies to map subsurface utilities like ground cables, substation utilities, building utilities (interior and exterior), and many other energized or conductive utilities.

With our newest utility detection location and marking services ANDI can provide specialized marking equipment that can be buried with equipment to make it possible to detect non-conductive materials, non-energized power lines or low power equipment.

ANDI has the experience and expertise to handle any utility detection needs.

Thermal Imaging

Our thermal imaging services have proven very effective in helping commercial and industrial companies keep manufacturing and other facilities operational thus preventing downtime. It has provided in-floor heating tracing for inspections and equipment installations, supported engineering firms and contractors performing building assessments, and allowed companies to trace pipes, mechanical, and electrical problem detections.

ANDI’s thermal imaging supports these services and much more.

Positive Material Identification (PMI)

Our positive material identification services let us conduct rapid quality screening of metal alloy materials. ANDI’s trained technicians use XRF analysis to conduct a fast and completely non-destructive analysis of metal components and provide a comprehensive report of each item with alloy element concentrates and material identification.

Whether you need to test a few small fittings or hundreds of large items, ANDI  can help reduce or eliminate costly alloy mix-ups through positive material identification, X-Ray fluorescence analysis and verification scan.
