GPRS: EXPERTS IN GPR
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC, is the Bloomington’s largest company specializing in the detection of underground utilities and the scanning of concrete structures. GPRS has an extensive nationwide network of highly trained and experienced technicians in every major U.S. market. When clients hire GPRS, they have the peace of mind of knowing that they have the most reliable scanning technology on their job site and they'll receive the assistance of a technician who can provide them with the most accurate data. For over a decade, GPRS has been the industry leader by providing outstanding service and cutting edge technology, keeping projects on time, reducing safety risks, and putting our relationships with our clients before profit.
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
Radar Scan Locates Dangers In Hollow Core Concrete - Carmel, Indiana
Our Customer needed to core drill through the hollow core slab and hired Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Indianapolis to locate any dangers before they cut the slab. The technician on site was able to locate any dangers and advised our customers to cut in the hollow areas of the slab to ensure they don’t cut the post tensioned cables. Our customer recalled GPRS of Indy back to this project several time due to our accuracy and efficiency when clearing coring positions. Our customer has core drilled over 40 locations and because of GPRS and its experienced technicians has not damaged any existing conduits or post tension cables.
FEATURED UTILITY LOCATING STORY
