GROUND PENETRATING RADAR SYSTEMS, LLC
As a contractor, we recognize you are faced with crucial decisions on a daily basis. For example, when you’re building a new structure or renovating an old building, there are countless subsurface hazards that need to be accounted for prior to excavation, core drilling and saw cutting.
If you choose to forgo employing GPR services, the result could be devastating to your company. There are compounding effects that can impact safety performance, project schedules and job site financials that could throw the entire project into turmoil.
3 KEY ISSUES TO CONSIDER
Your Bottom Line
Imagine if you fail to schedule a utility scan, and an unknown utility becomes damaged during an excavation. Maybe it’s a simple fix. Maybe not. It’s on you to correct it, and that expense will come out of your profit, cutting into an already thin margin.
The bread and butter of any construction company is repeat business. The last thing any company wants is a tarnished reputation because of a botched schedule or construction site accident related to you not doing your due diligence. With the multiple technologies GPRS employs to scan for buried utility lines, reinforcing steel, or embedded electrical conduits, there is no reason to risk losing good customers over ignoring a fundamental project checklist item.
It can drastically change your project timeline if you accidentally cut a post tension cable or sever a gas line and need to get it fixed. It may only be a day or two. Still, it could be longer, presenting the possibility of compounding scheduling delays occurring due to specific tasks needing to take place before the remaining functions can be completed. This, in effect, can impact your bottom line and hurt your profit.

We Minimize Risk
Just one utility strike or damaged concrete structural element can be the difference between a simple renovation and a prolonged project that incurs costly damages, delays, and even injuries. GPRS utilizes multiple cutting-edge technologies to get a clear picture of what’s underneath the surface or behind the concrete. It’s not just about the tools…It’s about the individual operating them. When these technologies are in the hands of GPRS Project Managers—the industry’s most experienced field technicians—you get an immediate and accurate report of subsurface elements, allowing you to complete your projects safely.
