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.
3D LASER SCANNING
As-built drawings are often out-of-date and inaccurate, leading to unexpected issues and critical delays. 3D laser scanning provides your team with precise point cloud data and 3D BIM models for reliable project planning, reducing the risk of change orders and project delays. Our 3D laser scanning services provide the link between unknown existing conditions and a true digital twin.
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
Structural Reinforcement Located by GPRS, LLC
A general contractor was core drilling (6) holes with various diameters in York, PA. Prior to drilling, the structural engineer required minimal reinforcement compromised during the process (particularly the vertical bar). The concrete wall was approximately 10 inches thick with two layers of reinforcement. The contractor reached out to Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC to scan the (6) hole locations.
FEATURED UTILITY LOCATING STORY
Scanning For New Utility Pole Installations In Pittsburgh Area Power Plant
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. (GPRS) was recently hired by a local contractor to utility scan various locations within Bruce Mansfield power plant for new utility pole installations. Each pole was to be set in place to run overhead electric lines for the plant. The scope of work was to scan 10’ x 10’ areas around each potential boring location. The client had already marked each location and the client performed a site walk down of all scan locations prior to work. This was the second of four phases the client was set to install. GPRS had already helped complete the first phase.
