Utility strikes cost contractors, municipalities, superintendents, engineers, and others time and money, and can even cause injury and death. At GPRS, we seek to prevent these costly utility strikes by setting the industry standard for private utility locating services. With our unmatched project accuracy, cutting-edge technology, Subsurface Investigation Methodology (SIM) certified Project Managers, and nationwide coverage, we keep your project on time, on budget, and safe.
In the past 20 years of operation, GPRS has achieved a subsurface scanning accuracy of 99.8% keeping over 160,000 project sites safe from subsurface damage as of 2022. In our pursuit of 100% subsurface damage prevention, we continue to provide this level of accuracy through the pairing of our SIM Certified Training, our cutting-edge subsurface investigative technology, and our nationwide network of Project Managers. GPRS Project Managers are trained by our world-class field support training specialists in the state-of-the-art GPRS Academy. These Project Managers are put through 80 hours of classroom/hands on training and 320 hours of mentorship in the field with our ground penetrating radar technology to become SIM certified.By being trained in using subsurface investigative technology at an expert level, GPRS Project Managers are equipped to perform the most comprehensive locates in the industry.
With a network of over 400 Project Managers located in every major city across the country, we are further solidifying why GPRS provides the most accessible and extensive utility locating services in the United States. Project Managers also further their education through more advanced training courses held at the GPRS academy with classes such as SIM 201 and 202. As we continue to grow and offer more services to our clients, we also provide more advanced training to our team so that we can continue to widen the gap between GPRS and the rest of the industry. While no one can perfectly predict what the future will hold for utilities and utility locating, we are continually exceeding industry performance in the precision and accuracy of our utility locating services, making GPRS the clear choice for subsurface damage prevention.
