Penhall Technologies uses GPR and Radio Detection to locate utilities
Penhall Technologies was hired to locate private utilities around a large courtyard in Indianapolis. The customer was installing columns to support a large outdoor canopy leading from building to building. Therefore, he was concerned about damaging buried utility lines and sewer and storm drains along the sidewalks. Penhall Technologies was able to mark out these utilities using a 400MHz GPR unit and partnered with a Radio Detection utility wand and transmitter. The analyst marked all findings on the surface with spray paint and flagged. Due to this, the customer was able to complete a map of the utility locate to use for future project. Because GPR does not emit radiation, it is safe to use in areas, such as a courtyard, during regular business hours.
