To ensure the overall timely success of your project, utility detection is critical to any construction project where subsurface excavation is planned. If this critical first step is ignored, the risk for injury increases, budget overruns can multiply, and your schedule can be delayed.
VIDEO PIPE INSPECTION (CCTV)
Video Pipe Inspection (CCTV) is a service used to inspect underground water sewer and lateral pipelines. VPI is a great tool for investigating cross-bores, structural faults and damages, and lateral line inspection.
Whether it's a renovation project or new build construction, the likelihood of needing to cut or core concrete is high. There is an inherent risk of striking rebar, conduits, and post tension cables during the cutting or coring process. If a striking occurs, repair costs begin to add up, delays creep into your schedule and it creates a safety hazard for your employees.
A water leak detection company that you can rely on, the GPRS team is here to help. We specialize in industrial, municipal and residential leak detection services. We’re experts in underground water leak detection, and our water loss specialists can quickly determine the root cause of the issue and recommend the appropriate fix. In many instances, including emergencies, we will utilize non-destructive testing (NDT) detection methods, including leak noise correlators, to avoid excavation, saving you money and time.
Mapping & Modeling
The goal of the GPRS Deliverables Department is to deliver clear and understandable findings with each of our outputs from field markings to field sketches, KMZ files, or CAD drawings that provide 2D site plans or even 3D CAD models. In addition, upon the completion of every project, our customers receive a job summary that includes job scope information, site photos, description of site conditions, equipment used, and notes from the project.
FEATURED CONCRETE SCANNING STORY
Concrete Scanning At Apartment Building
GPRS of Michigan was hired to scan multiple floors of an apartment building in Ann Arbor to locate reinforcing in the concrete prior to the contractor coring new holes to run new conduits throughout the existing floors. GPRS was able to successfully locate and mark-out the reinforcing in the concrete and provide depths to those anomalies so the contractor could avoid them in the coring process. GPRS can provide contractors with the information needed to complete their project with the confidence they need to accurately core or saw cut.
FEATURED UTILITY LOCATING STORY
GPRS Locates Private Utilities For Power Company
A general contractor working at a Detroit Edison facility in Michigan recently contacted GPRS to help locate private utilities that one call services would not locate. The contractor was installing a new security fence at the entrance of a parking lot along with a new card reader and camera. Installing the new conduits for this system required the excavation of a trench along the front of the property and up to the building.
