GPRS was contacted by a small
town near the Mississippi river to scan the entire towns public roads for large
subsurface voids. GPRS scanned over 30 miles of road and was able to connect
our GPR directly to a GPS unit in order to overlay all of the GPR findings in Google Earth and to
create a CAD drawing. What a cool project to be a part of! How can we help you
on your next project?
All scanning conducted was implemented through our SIM process. Click on this link to learn more about our industry leading SIM training and processes!
Our state of the art GSSI GPR equipment sends radio signals
into concrete that send the data back instantly for real-time interpretation.
The radio waves are safe for workplaces so there is no need for any stop in
work for floors below or around the scan areas. 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 using our transmitter box, which sends out a
frequency via induction or conduction with any exposed or known surface utility line.
“GPRS deploys the best equipment operated by skilled project managers who know how to solve your subsurface locating issue. Since our inception, GPRS has completed hundreds of thousands of projects in North America. Our accuracy rate on these projects is over 99%.” (www.gprsinc.com)
GPRS technicians are
commonly called for a
wide array of locating, such as concrete scanning for rebar, mesh, conduits,
radiant tube heating, post tension cables, and any other utility that may be
buried. We also scan for private and public utility locates, underground voids
or vaults, footings, buried foundations, and Underground Storage Tanks (UST’s).
All these tasks are all done in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive manner.
before you plan! This ensures worker safety and saves valuable time by
targeting specific areas of concern. GPRS can provide GPS reports overlaid on
Google Earth or overlay information on pre-existing CAD files for future
“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.” (www.gprsinc.com)
At GPRS, safety
is our #1 priority. When saw cutting, digging, or drilling the last
thing you, or our technicians
want, is to run into any problems. While you may think that there is nothing
buried in the concrete or ground, better think again… There is an unfortunate
number of people that call us
because they were proven wrong. The price of one of our technicians is well
worth it compared to the costs of repairing a mishap later on.
