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.
Imagine if you fail to schedule a utility scan and an unknown utility is damaged during an excavation. Maybe it’s a simple fix. Maybe not. It’s on you to correct it and that expense is going to 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 check list item.
If you do accidentally cut a post tension cable or sever a gas line and you have to get it fixed, imagine what that will do to your project timeline? It may only be a day or two, but it could be longer. The possibility of compounding scheduling delays will occur since certain tasks have to be completed before others can take place. This will also impact your bottom line.
When you decide to hire a utility locating and concrete scanning company, why not consider the best?
Unlike companies that offer multiple services, at Ground Penetrating Radar Systems we focus on a single task. This is our sole focus. We specialize in utility locating and concrete scanning, and our experience and expertise is second to none.

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 technologies to get a clear picture of what’s underneath the ground or behind the concrete. It’s not just about the tools…It’s about the person operating them. When these technologies are in the hands of GPRS technicians—the industry’s most experienced technicians—you get an immediate and accurate report of subsurface elements, allowing you to safely and successfully complete your projects. Our technicians are held to the highest stands—ours.
The technologies used by GPRS are non-destructive, non-intrusive, and non-hazardous. This means they not only help you avoid subsurface hazards, but also that your personnel will be safe during testing.
All GPRS technicians are educated in our world class training facility and mentored by experienced team members to ensure you receive quality results on your project.
GPRS seeks to understand your information needs at the start of every project, and we strive to generate answers for your subsurface questions, keeping you on budget and on schedule.
