Upper Marlboro Utility Locating Projects that Penhall Worked On
Identify vital utility lines before remodeling to ensure safety during construction
A customer in Bethesda, MD recently hired Penhall Technologies for our underground utility locating services. The client wanted us to locate and mark their utility lines for them before they decided to do any type of remodeling to the commercial property they had just purchased. Our expert analysts used GPR (ground penetrating radar) to locate all lines. After using the GSSI 400MHz antenna, the utility cart pictured, the analyst also used his RD7100 equipment to corroborate the location of the utility lines. In total, they found water, gas, and power lines. The analysts marked all the utilities in the designated color. The clients are now well on their way to remodeling their office in a safe, and timely manner.
