GPRS Locates Conduit for Environmental Firm

An environmental consulting firm in the Rochester, New York area is currently preparing to begin a project within a manufacturing facility, and is worried about striking conduits in the floor during their testing. In order to acquire their needed samples, they need to drill through the floor of the facility in several different areas. Before they can begin that though, they must first find out where there are already conduits running throughout the area so they do not strike them during the drilling process.

The firm working on the project had used ground penetrating radar on previous projects, similar to this, and knew it would save time, and reduce the chance to destroying any conduits present within the slab. They decided to call the premier GPR company in the country, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. to complete the survey.

Jim Bell of the Upstate, New York office, which focuses on the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton, Corning/Elmira, and Albany markets mobilized to the site and was able to quickly detect and lay out the lines running through the areas in which the concrete would need to be drilled into. Jim and GPR were able to complete this project in real time and with none of the radiation concerns that come with using x-ray. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems has the ability to locate and map out rebar, post-tension, and conduit prior to saw cutting and trenching.
