Level B Subsurface Utility Investigation and mapping for the construction of a $400 million commercial facility in Idaho. Despite inches of snow pilled on the worksite just prior to the investigation, we were able to identify over 14,000LF of existing utilities.
A national General Contractor was preparing for the construction of a $400 million commercial facility within an existing food processing plant located in Idaho. This area was particularly difficult as the harsh winter conditions forced plant personnel to install utilities at added depths throughout the project. Our project managers were also challenged by the elements, having snowed several inches the day prior to our investigation start. Despite these challenges, Vosburg Welsh identified over 14,000LF of existing utilities using both ground penetrating radar and electromagnetic field detection equipment. Our client used this information to avoid costly repairs/delays that can be detrimental to the continuing operations of the food processing facility.
