GPRS, Inc. was contacted by a major general contractor in Milwaukee, WI to locate many private utilities in area of an industrial plant where digging was to occur in the future. In addition to successfully locating and providing depths to ALL utilities, GPRS was able to provide the client with GPS mapping services of the utilities found. This assisted the contractor in the planning stages of the project so they could determine where they should place the new addition and how to safely excavate the area without a utility strike. Many of the electrical lines had been pulled prior to scheduling the scanning. Thanks to GPR technology all of the utilities were able to be located, including the empty PLASTIC conduits that cannot be found using traditional methods.
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.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Wisconsin was contacted by general contractor to scan areas for new plumbing at a General Mitchell International Airport. The airport is adding a Starbucks Coffee to its line of stores and restaurants within the terminal for travelers. New plumbing needed to be added to accommodate equipment and layout.
