GPRS Used to Help Saw Cutters Avoid Conduits - Warwick, RI

A General Contractor had a project in Warwick, RI at a Target store. The scope of the project was to map out all conduits and shallow utilities around their proposed trench locations prior to saw cutting. The General Contractor decided to contact Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Rhode Island after learning that they have been in business since 2001 and each technician has the experience of performing over 350 surveys per year. GPRS was able to complete the investigation that same day and allowed the project to proceed safely and without delay. GPRS uses real time applications and were experienced enough to be able to locate all of the possible conduits and shallow utilities in the area.

All of the conduits and utilities that GPRS found were marked on the surface and given a depth where the client deemed necessary. GPRS found numerous conduits around some of the saw cutting locations and helped the General Contractor determine the best course of action based on the information we were able to give them. GPRS Technicians also utilize a Radio Detection device in order to be able to detect all live power and radio frequencies to help further determine if an anomaly is an electric or a communications line to help give the Contractor as much information as possible. The General Contractor now had the information they needed to proceed with the saw cutting that day. The General Contractor was enamored with the quality of work that was performed and the timely, efficient manner in which it was done
