Utility Locate in Phoenix, AZ.
The Purpose of this utility locate was to locate site lighting in an area where a canopy was going to be installed. The customer will be installing a canopy in the designated area that was scanned. Figurering out in which direction the site lighting was going was crucial in finding the direction prior to drilling and or excavating. It is necessary using underground utility locating to find any other potential lines as well, in the area as it is our duty to ensure saftey on all projects, as safety is parimount in all cases.
The company that hired GPRS made the wise decision to have utility locating done prior to drilling. GPRS was able to identify site lighting in the designated area for an canopy install. A 400 mHz antenna with the ground penetrating radar was used by GPRS to scan the areas as well as a Radio Detection wand which picks up most utilities with a current running through it. All of the findings were clearly marked on the surface with spray paint and discussed with the customer.
Prior to saw cutting, core drilling, excavating or boring in Arizona, be safe and it is the best practice to get as many questions answered as to what sub-surface obstructions are present in any given area. If you have questions about what lies beneath the surface you’re working on, GPRS should be able to give you a much clearer picture as to what you are dealing with. Typically able to arrive on site to begin scanning the dedicated area within 1-2 days. GPRS will take care of your project in a timely, safe, and accurate manner.
