Utility Locate and GPS Utility Mapping
Encompass Inspections was contacted by a national contractor to provide a complete site utility locate, along with providing utility mapping for future as-built use. The ultimate goal of the ground penetrating radar utility locate was to identify all underground utilities present in the proposed trench path.
How We Responded
Technicians were dispatched, and arrived as scheduled to the customers location to conduct a utility locate and ground penetrating radar survey. The equipment that was used were the Radio Detection 8000 utility locator, GPR(Ground Penetrating Radar), and Trimble GPS to aid in the mapping of the located utilities.
Results We Delivered
The utility locate survey identified underground gas lines, electrical lines, communication lines, and water pipes running in conflict within the proposed trench excavation paths. The customer had also requested Encompass Inspections to provide a formal job report detailing the site findings. In addition to the job report, Encompass provided utility mapping using GPS for future as-built use.
The client expectations were exceeded with the quality end results of the survey that Encompass Inspections delivered. The utility locate services helped the client by reducing the cost of any potential damages that could have occurred by not hiring a private utility locator. Additional saving will be realized by future use of the accurate utility mapping service that was provided on this project.
