It’s always important to have as much information as possible as to what is beneath the surface prior to digging. A general contractor had a project outside of a facility where he needed to excavate a 7500 sq ft area in order to install a tower to support sagging electrical lines within a power station. Prior to beginning the excavation process, it was imperative to locate the exact depths of any utilities within the area in order to mitigate as much risk of injury and damage as possible. The general contractor contacted Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Massachusetts to investigate the areas using ground penetrating radar technology and radio detection. The methods that are utilized by GPRS are mobile & cost effective allowing real time results so the project can continue on schedule. GPRS located the exact depth of 7 electric lines, 2 water lines, and one drain line that the client was completely unaware. This knowledge helped the general contractor plan the safest route and made him aware of the times when it would be safest to hand dig. With this information the project could resume safely and on schedule.
GPRS applications are both safe & cost effective that provide real time results.
