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As-built drawings are often out-of-date and inaccurate, leading to unexpected issues and critical delays. 3D laser scanning provides your team with precise point cloud data and 3D BIM models for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
GPR Scan For Soil Borings Inside Race Facility in Fort Worth, Texas
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. was contacted to clear several planned interior and exterior soil borings inside of a race facility in Fort Worth, Texas. The firm the facility hired was tasked with drilling said borings and examining the soil samples taken to look for contamination. As numerous hydraulic lifts and several oil and gas features were located on site, borings were needed near each feature to check for the potential contamination. As this was an active facility, and other work was being performed in the vicinity, the firm needed to check all locations in a very timely manner and ensure total safety.
FEATURED UTILITY LOCATING STORY
Hospital Scan In Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas
We recently scanned a large portion of a hospital in the DFW area. The scan encompassed about 15 acres and the customer requested that GPRS mark out the locations of all utilities on site as shown above. When we approach a large project like this, we use a tested GPR methodology to ensure that the scan is comprehensive. SIM (Subsurface Investigation Methodology) includes the following steps: To begin, we search the site for visible signs of utilities, and then we open up utility features (as needed) and use the EM Locator to induce a tone onto anything conductive. By inducing a tone onto each utility, we can follow it and mark it on the surface, and we can get some idea of the depth of the line. Additionally, we know what utility is being toned, so we can generally identify the utility correctly, though this is not always the case. Sometimes, the tone can jump from one utility to another, creating confusion. It is always best to pothole our findings to verify whether all lines are identified correctly.
