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. Read about our Green Box Guarantee

When change orders take place due to unforeseen circumstances on job site, a budget can quickly become ruined. When utilities are not located prior to excavation or drilling, damages can occur – unleashing a series of extra expenses. Scanning with GPRS can assist in keeping your project within the budget.
When utilities and pipes or concrete reinforcement is damaged, the news quickly spreads. Depending on the severity and cost of the damage, meetings and blame can follow. The repercussions for failing to take proper precautions can be loss of jobs, contracts, and ultimately reputation.
PROJECT DOWN TIME
Construction projects run on strict timelines. A stoppage in work due to a utility strike or severed post-tension cable can be costly. The investigation process takes time in addition to whatever repairs must take place. Damage prevention by using ground penetrating radar can keep projects on schedule – saving time and money.
When you strike an underground pipe or subsurface reinforcing, the results are detrimental to surrounding areas. Concrete walls and surfaces, along with structural integrity will be compromised as the result of these damages. Therefore, GPRS uses GPR and other key tools to mitigate damages to utilities and surrounding property.
