Encompass Inspections was called out by a local electric company needing an underground electric line located that was encased in cement. The conduit was thought to be in the exact area of where the contractor needed to drill anchors.
How We Responded
A technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections Northern California office and arrived at the job site in Walnut Creek, CA within 24 hours of receiving the project request. Once a 360 degree walk of the work area was completed with the site foreman of the electrical company, Encompass Inspections set out to locate all underground utilities in the work area.
Results We Delivered
The underground locate technician was able to accurately locate and mark the target electrical line using ground penetrating radar and a RD7000 cable locator. The results were identified and marked directly on to the surface making it safe for the electrical company to perform their anchor drilling and avoid any damages.
Using both GPR utility scans and underground pipe locator technologies together, it greatly reduced the project costs by allowing the project to move forward without the high cost of damaging an electrical line.
