GPRS, Inc. was contacted by Stoughton Trailers to locate underground utilities inside their factory prior to cutting concrete for the next expansion in the plant. The GPR equipment detected multiple metal and plastic conduits beneath the surface. Thankfully, these utilities were not in the areas where cutting was to occur.
GPRS, Inc. was even able to provide depths of the utilities thanks to the GPR technology and the experienced project manager conducting the scans!
GPRS, Inc. being able to locate the utilities as well as providing depths of the utilities allowed the plant to further the project without the fear of the unknown beneath their feet. This also allowed the general contractor for the project to keep the workers safe, keep the project on schedule, and under budget.
Ground penetrating radar is a great tool to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes and can also be used to locate underground utilities prior to digging or excavating. Please contact Ground Penetrating Radar Systems – GPRS to learn how we can assist with your project. To locate rebar, post tension cables, voids, conduits, pipes or utilities in concrete or underground please contact us today.
