Utility and Void Locating in Chicago, IL

Several investors have bought an existing building and are making plans to turn it into a processing center.

The current equipment has been removed from the building and the new equipment will soon be moved in.

In order to get the new equipment into the building, large cranes are being used in several locations around the building. A local contractor has been contracted to retrofit the building for the processing center.

This contractor contacted GPRS to use Ground Penetrating Radar and Radio Detection to find any utilities or voids in the areas that the cranes are going to sit.

Technician Michael Flis was able to use the Radio Detection wand and the 400 MHz radar to find electric, water, sewer, and fire protection water lines in the area where the cranes are to be set. All lines were marked out in paint on the ground so when the cranes arrive it can be set in an area that will not cause damage to any of the utilities.
