GPRS of Upstate New York Scans for Utility Lines at Airport

A local utility construction contractor was working on a project that required the addition of several new electrical lines at a local airport. The project involved installing several new lines through the ground from one building to the other so that an electrical circuit could be completed. To complete this project, the contractor needed to excavate (at least to a minimal depth) throughout a significant area of the project area and they were already aware that several utility lines ran through the area. For this reason, prior to beginning any excavation, the contractor was required by the airport to hire a company to scan for utility lines.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. had worked with this particular contractor in the past, and they were well aware that GPRS: The Experts in GPR is able to provide accurate and timely results on a consistent basis. After calling contacted Project Manager, Jim Bell of GPRS of our Upstate New York office, the contractor was pleased that they were able to schedule an appointment time with GPRS that worked well with their project timeline.

Jim Bell, of the Upstate, New York office mobilized to the site and marked out all of the underground utility lines within the area. All of the utility lines that were located were clearly marked onto the surface, and the depths of the lines was also marked onto the surface.

In addition to locating underground utility lines and storage tanks, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems LLC., has the ability to locate and map out rebar, post-tension and conduit prior to saw cutting and trenching, and in some cases, unmarked graves.
