Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Las Vegas, Nevada, was contacted by a local General Contractor to scan a field for utilities and any unknown anomalies, in Las Vegas, NV.

A GPRS project manager was able to meet the quick turnaround time needed to accomplish the job and to schedule and complete the task within twenty-four hours of being notified of the need. The client needed to excavate the field to make way for a newer sports facility and did not want to hit any utilities in that process. GPRS was able to inform the client that their as-builts that they had were in accurate. That in fact the electrical lines were running a different direction than they were previously suspected of being. GPRS was able to locate and mark out all utilities in the area to allow for safe excavating of the site.

It was essential that all live power lines and any other possible utilities were located that may be within the area. Any damage during the excavation would not only be dangerous but also costly. Throughout the project the GPRS’ project manager was made aware that the client was going to have a GPS map made to have a permanent record for the utilities located. At the suggestion of the project manager GPRS was able to provide a GPS map of the utilities located at a much better price than they would have been able to get the same product elsewhere.

GPRS also holds a wide variety of scanning radar equipment, such as specially sized GPR scanners to scan the concrete in confined spaces that typically cannot be reached. This allowed more options for the client to decide where to drill in order to complete the work they needed.

Ground penetrating Radar is a great tool for locating underground utilities such as water, gas, electrical, communication, sewer, and other objects prior to digging or excavating. Ground penetrating radar can also be used to scan areas of concrete to locate post-tensioned cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes.

GPRS can also provide private utility locating services. Where “811” or Blue Stake services stop at the meter and only detect utilities on the public side of any meter, GPRS can complete the entire project and locate underground utilities wherever you need. GPRS also offers detailed reports, as built illustrations, including GPS aerial mapping on a map or CAD illustration.
