Utility Locate For Handicap Ramps
Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local Commercial Contractor needing to clear an area in order to install new handicap ramp access ramps without hitting any existing utilities in a safe and effective manner
How We Responded
A Technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections California office and arrived on the jobsite in San Diego, California. Once a jobsite walk was completed with the project manager, Encompass Inspections set out to identify and mark out all of the existing sub surface utilities.
Results We Delivered
The underground locator revealed existing electrical conduits, gas pipes, air lines, sanitary sewer and water lines underground within the proposed excavation area by utilizing RD7000 Utility Locator and Ground Penetrating Radar. Upon completing the Underground Utility Locating, the results were marked directly onto the surface allowing the plumber to perform their work safely and without any damage to the structure or job site personnel.
We used both GPR and underground pipe locator technologies on this project. A magnetometer helped identify a large gas main in the nearby area that may have been disastrous should it have been hit while excavating.
