Environmental Resource Management was working on a project in a manufacturing plant in Rochester, NY and as part of this needed conduct soil borings in several locations throughout the location. In order to determine where they could drill they needed to have the steel reinforcement mapped out, as well as utilities running through the floors mapped out. Environmental Resource Management, who is a regular customer of GPRS Inc. called the local representative to come out and conduct the survey.
Jim Bell of the Upstate, NY office, which focuses on the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca, and Albany markets mobilized to the site and was able to quickly detect and lay out the steel reinforcement as conduit running through the areas near the boring locations. Jim and GPR were able to complete this project in real time and with none of the radiation concerns that come with using x-ray to locate tensioned cables or rebar.
The picture below shows the location which was surveyed. If you are interested in obtaining more information or a quote please visit our “Contact Us” page for a local representative near you. GPRS, Inc. now has an office located in the Upstate New York area that can more adequately meet the needs of contractors who desire the use of ground penetrating radar in the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca, and Albany areas.
