GPR Scan Performed to Locate Live Conduits in Newark, NJ

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Northern New Jersey was contacted by a general contractor to locate all pipes and live conduits within and under a slab on grade in order to install a new sanitary line within an educational hospital.  The general contractor was planning on saw cutting the slab and digging down 3 feet in order to install a new sanitary line.  To ensure safe cutting and digging, the client requested all pipes and conduits within 3’ to be located.  The entire trenching area was scanned and any obstruction was located and marked out in real time.  Multiple live conduits were located both embedded in the slab and under the slab within the trenching area.  The contractor was able to cut shortly after the scanning was completed and the collaborative efforts and real time results helped keep the job on schedule.

Ground Penetrating Radar is a great tool to scan areas for rebar, post tension cables, and conduits, including PVC pipes and can also be used to locate underground utilities prior to digging, excavating, or drilling.  Please contact Ground Penetrating Radar Systems – GPRS – to learn how we can assist with your project in Newark and surrounding areas such as East Orange, Orange, West Orange, Kearny, Jersey City, Elizabeth, Union, Irvington, Springfield, Millburn, Livingston, Secaucus, Union City, Hoboken, Bayonne and many more.  Please contact Joe Bernarducci at 848-223-5084 or to learn more about ground penetrating radar and how GPRS can assist in your projects.
