Ground Penetrating Radar for drain pipe locating
Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local contractor needing to locate drain pipe prior to sawcutting activities.
How We Responded
Encompass Inspections dispatched a technician from its office to arrive on the construction site in Connecticut within 24 hours of the project request. Once a jobsite walk was completed with the foreman on site, Encompass Inspections proceeded to locate and mark out all of the existing sub surface utilities and possible targets in the concrete slab.
Results We Delivered
Encompass Inspections scanned for all underground utility lines as well as possible conduits using Ground Penetrating Radar and Radio Detection locating devices. Upon completing the GPR Scanning, the results were marked in red keel directly onto the surface allowing the foreman to layout a trench path for sawcutting without damaging utilities.
In addition to assisting the contractors emergency locate request, Encompass Inspections maximized the site time efficiency by sing both GPR and underground pipe locator technologies simultaneously, it greatly reduced the project costs by allowing the project to be marked out quickly and accurately.
