To ensure the overall timely success of you project, utility detection is critical to any construction project where a subsurface excavation is planned. If this critical first step is ignored, the risk for injury increases, budget overruns can multiply and your schedule can be delayed.

Video Pipe Inspection (CCTV) is a service used to inspect underground water sewer and lateral pipelines, VPI is a great tool for investigating cross-bores, structural faults and damages, and lateral line inspection.

With new build construction and renovation project, the likelihood of needing to cut or core concrete is high. There is an inherent risk of striking rebar, conduits, and post tension cables during the cutting or coring process. If a strict occurs, repair costs begin to add up, delays creep into your schedule and it creates a safety hazard for your employees.

The goal of the GPRS Deliverables Department is to deliver clear and understandable findings with each of our outputs from field markings to field sketches, KMZ files, or CAD drawings that provide 2D site plans or even 3D CAD models. In addition, upon the completion of every project, our customers receive a job summary that includes job scope information, site photos, description of site conditions, equipment used, and notes from the project.

The concrete wall was approximately 10 inches thick with two layers of reinforcement. The contractor reached out to Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC to scan the (6) hole locations.

Utility Locating

A general contractor reached out to Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS), Philadelphia office. The scope of work for this project was to detect underground utilities in an area approximately 100’ in length. The primary concern was the location of a 6” water main which was coming out of the water pit and going right in the area of the proposed excavation area. The location of this water line was critical for the engineer to plan the location of the proposed concrete pad that was looking to be installed. This project took place at a facility in Chester, PA.
