Private Utility Locating Data Lines For New York College Campus

A national utility construction contractor is currently working on adding additional data lines on the campus of Binghamton University. The project involves running the lines through the ground from one building to the other in order to complete the circuit. To complete this, the company needed to excavate, at least to a minimal depth, throughout a significant length of the ground, which had other utilities already in the area. For this reason, prior beginning any excavation on the site they were required to hire a company to complete the utility locating to eliminate the possibility of striking unknown lines.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. had completed other projects similar to this for them in the past and they knew they not only had the ability to locate the utility lines, but to also provide their respective depths beneath the surface. The contractor decided to give GPRS a call and was pleased to hear he was available to complete the project well within the required time frame!

Jim Bell of the Upstate, New York office mobilized to the site and began marking out all of the underground utilities within the area. In addition to finding underground utilities, and storage tanks, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems 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.
