GPRS: EXPERTS IN GPR
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC, is the Fort Collins’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.
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As-built drawings are often out-of-date and inaccurate, leading to unexpected issues and critical delays. 3D laser scanning provides your team with precise point cloud data and 3D BIM models for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 Used To Locate Reinforcement On Top Of Balconies
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. of Colorado was contacted by a contractor to locate reinforcement within a concrete slab. The customer was looking to drill anchors a certain depth into the concrete slab and did not wish to strike any reinforcement in the process. Being that the work was performed several stories high and on top of multiple balconies, GPRS made sure that safety was the top priority.
FEATURED UTILITY LOCATING STORY
Ground Radar Utility Search In Fort Collins
A local environmental company in Fort Collins was needing to drill a hole through the asphalt at a golf course to monitor the soil conditions below. Before they could perform the work, they needed to have the area scanned with GPR to make sure the area was clear of any obstructions, so there were no surprises when they drill blindly into the earth. The subject area that was scanned was roughly 10’ x 25’ in size and sat right next to a light pole which gave them concerns about the power running through the area. Also, not in the picture is a building roughly 30’ away that had a bunch of utilities exiting the side of the building going into the ground, heading in a direction that nobody knew where they were running. So along with using the GPR we also used a transmitter with a locating wand to put a tone on those utility lines to verify they did not run through the subject area. By having GPRS out to clear the area prior to drilling, we were able to mark out all of the utilities in the general vicinity to give them a peace of mind that they won’t hit anything while drilling the hole. This also saves a lot of money in repairs had they not scanned first and then cut through a power line or communication line example.
