Private Utility Locating Project - Burlington, Ontario
GPRS Enterprises Inc. of Hamilton / Toronto was contacted by a local contractor to conduct a GPR survey of 2 large areas prior to excavation. Our client needed to clear their project area for all utilities so that they could start the trenching process of bringing the hydro feed to the new proposed location of the main sign to this shopping district. It was critical that all surrounding utilities were mapped out prior to the trenching process, GPRS Project Manager Adrian Atkins was able to arrive at the site within 24 hours to conduct a survey of the 2 work areas to mark out and locate the exact location of not only the Hydro duct bank but all surrounding utilities. After the initial GPR scan, a GPR grid scan was then performed in each area after all other unknowns had been eliminated.
The photo above represents the proposed location of the new main sign for the shopping district. Hydro lines and all surrounding utilities were mapped out and flagged giving the contractor peace of mind to move forward with the trenching process.
GPRS is aware of the importance of diligent work to ensure that hitting any lines does not happen. In this particular job, hitting any utilities could slow down the process, affecting surrounding communities and the shopping district. GPR and Radio-detection was used to give this customer peace of mind so that he could continue his work with confidence. GPR and radio detection equipment can be used near anyone at a project area, and it does not emit harmful radiation or excessive noise.

Simply assuming that there are not any utility lines in an area can lead to dangerous, time consuming and costly mistakes. Our client was able to save a great deal of time and money by making sure that they knew the location of all utilities below the surface prior to excavating. GPRS takes the time and effort necessary to make sure that even simple projects are completed. We make sure that nothing is left to chance.
