Utility Locating for a Tower Site Upgrade – Des Moines, IA

GPRS was contacted by an out-of-state construction company doing tower site upgrades. The contractor was concerned about some existing utilities that may be obstructing his excavation area. Fortunately for him, this was something that we could assist him with. GPRS utilized multiple tools to complete this utility investigation such as radio detection and ground penetrating radar to name a couple a few. The GPRS technician was able to give a very accurate depiction of the subsurface to the contractor, who was very happy with the results.

Ground penetrating radar services include utility locating as well as concrete GPR mapping. GPRS is a nationwide company and utilizes its nationwide knowledge and experience on every project. It is our job to make sure that when you excavate that you do it as safely as possible with the knowledge and piece of mind that you deserve. Mitigating safety hazards is only a part of our job description. Knowing the location of underground utilities greatly increases the smoothness of your project.

Ground penetrating radar services can also provide GPS maps of the utilities located. This can be greatly helpful if you are looking for long-term documentation or if the project itself is long-term. This type of information can be used for planning as well as on-site work. “811” is a service that should be used every time an excavation is taking place, but unfortunately it is not always that simple. “811” is  a service that provides PUBLIC utility locating. Meaning that they will only locate up to the meter, curb stop, or so on. This leaves a great deal of utilities that they will not and can not locate for you. However, that is why we are here to help. We can locate, mark, flag, and document these utilities for you.
