Underground Utilities Located at a Local Business Development
Prior to excavating and trenching for new electrical and communication conduit install, a local electrical contractor subcontracted Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC to locate possible utility lines in select areas throughout the property. The contractor noticed multiple electrical conduits running into the ground near the area they were about to dig and needed to safely clear the area of underground utilities. After a quick internet search for Houston area utility locators, the contractor got in touch with GPRS. After mobilizing to the jobsite, the Ground Penetrating Radar Systems team, was able to locate the electrical conduits that the contractor noticed. During the site walkthrough, GPRS also noticed evidence of multiple other utilities in the area.
Using Electromagnetic Line Locating and GPR technologies, they were also able to detect a handful of other underground utilities, including communication lines and water lines. The contractor was able to visually see all of the findings due to the easy to interpret color coding and flagging system used by GPRS to mark all their findings. After each area was scanned, the utility line locations were collected via GPS and exported to a Google Earth KMZ for the client to use in the future, holding a convenient and precise permanent record. A post scan walkthrough was also conducted with the GPRS team and the client to explain all our findings and answer any questions the client may have. After reviewing the results, the client was grateful that GPRS was able to mobilize in such a short notice to safely clear the jobsite. Using the information provided, the client was able to make informed decisions, keeping their project on time, under budget, and most importantly, safe. Safety is top priority with GPRS; all necessary personal protective equipment (“PPE”) is utilized at all time on all work on sites, and our goal is to get our team, and yours, home safely.
