Upstream Construction, of Cortland, NY recently needed to complete a job to expand an already existing building. After striking one conduit that had not been known about, they decided it was a good idea to call a utility locating service to determine if and where there were more utility lines in the area. Upstream found the closest company that performed the utility locating service, which was Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. When they called the technician that covered the Cortland/Ithaca area they were pleased to hear he was available to complete the project the very next day.
Jim Bell of the Upstate, NY office mobilized to the site and began marking out all of the utilities that were located in the proposed area of the expansion. In addition to finding underground utilities, and storage tanks, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems has the ability to locate and map out rebar, post-tension and conduit prior to saw cutting and trenching, and in some cases unmarked graves.
GPRS, Inc. are pleased to announce the opening of an Upstate, NY office servicing the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca, Binghamton and Albany areas. If you are interested in obtaining more information or a quote please visit our “Contact Us” page for a local representative near you.
