GPRS Scaling Skyscrapers

Don’t be fooled by the lofty view, Chicago was nick-named the windy city for a reason!

As winds are raging, GPRS scans tight spaces atop a 48-story building in Chicago, IL. We were able to map out rebar so the general contractor could safely drill anchors for future building plans.  High or low, GPRS is here to help you on any subsurface locating you need to finish your project safely and timely. Don’t hesitate to call your nearest GPRS technician today!

Scan before you plan! This ensures worker safety and saves valuable time by targeting specific areas of concern. GPRS can also provide GPS reports overlaid on Google Earth or overlay information on pre-existing CAD files for future building plans. This is all done in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive manner.

One of our goals at GPRS is to keep all projects on-budget and on-schedule.   

GPRS assists by giving a real-time depth view of subsurface hazards such as reinforcing, utilities, conduit, underground storage tanks, voids, etc. This reduces the likelihood of subsurface obstruction strikes during core drilling, saw cutting, trenching, soil boring, directional drilling, anchoring, and other sub-surface applications.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems uses the GSSI (Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc.) Sir-4000 technology in locating. GPRS also uses the RD-8100 Locator to locate live power and radio frequency (RF) signals underground. We can also detect utilities in or under concrete via induction or conduction with an exposed or known surface utility line.

Time is a primary currency traded on any given construction project. At Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, our everyday efficiency in operations allows us to respond to the immediate needs of our customers, often within 24 hours or less. (
