Utility Locate For Support Post Replacement
Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local excavator needing to Identify all utilities throughout the compound to allow for replacement of support beams in a safe and effective manner.
How We Responded
A Technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections Midwest office and arrived on the jobsite in Hillsdale, IL within 24 hours of the project request. Once a jobsite walk was completed with the project manager for the excavating company, Encompass Inspections set out to identify and mark out all of the existing sub surface utilities.
Results We Delivered
The underground locator revealed existing electric, fiber optic, 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 Excavator to perform their trenching safely and without any damage to the structure or job site personnel.
This site was very busy and there were private fiber optic lines within the excavation area. Had those lines been hit, the contractor would have had an extremely expensive damage on their hands as well as lost time in the office.
