Private Utility Scanning for Communications Company - Melbourne, FL

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems has a reputation of professionalism, integrity, and hard work. In Melbourne, FL there are several major contractors who without fail contact GPRS for all of their GPR needs. Whether directional boring, trenching, soil boring or restructuring landscaping, contractors know that precision is always critical when locating and identifying utilities. Which is why GPRS has so many loyal clients. GPRS strives for precision and is at the forefront of providing GPR locating of utilities in all of Florida.

When adding in new utilities into developed areas you need to get the area located and located well. Directional boring is a process that requires knowing the location of existing utilities. A prominent communication installation company in Melbourne needed to have a sizable area located of roughly 800 linear feet. The area crossed through a suburb and across one major road. Knowing the demands of the project the contractor called GPRS to work with the professionals there to make sure they are able to perform their labors without incident.

On the day of the project the contractors met the GPRS professional on site to discuss any further details and flush out any communication of the needs of the project. After a few minutes the GPRS employee went to work using a combination of an RD-7000, 400MHz antenna and an inducer. When dealing with a myriad of utilities underground you need all the tools you can get to make sure you get the most accurate information. The GPRS professional started with the RD-7000, which can easily detect communication lines and electrical conduits buried underneath the surface of the ground. While doing this he was able to survey the land for any clues as to what else might be underneath the ground. The investigation showed that there was a storm manhole and a few cleanouts that could have easily been missed or overlooked. After locating all of the electrical and communication lines the GPRS employee used the GPR 400MHz antenna to map out all of the utilities that were known and unknown. They were then able to provide depths for all of the utilities.
