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.
With new build construction and renovation project, 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 strict occurs, repair costs begin to add up, delays creep into your schedule and it creates a safety hazard for your employees.
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.
GPRS Industry Expertise
Featured Projects in the Metro Atlanta Area
GPRS locates utilities, scans concrete and provides video pipe inspections throughout Atlanta and the state of Georgia.

GPRS focuses on damage prevention and reducing the risk of injury to personnel and damage to utilities.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was asked to assist in an office building renovation in Atlanta, GA. Our client needed to cut out a large section of the concrete slab on 4 floors to install a new staircase. We were asked to determine the position and spacing of reinforcing steel within the concrete slab, beam and joist positions, and we were also asked to determine the existence and position of live electrical conduits in the floor. GPRS was able to complete the requested scanning quickly and efficiently, and our client was able to cut several large holes in a concrete slab without striking any conduits.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was requested on site at the AT&T office in Atlanta, GA. GPRS Project Managers. Jeff DeHart and Patrick Moulin, were asked to determine the location of the reinforcing steel, beams, and embedded utility lines within the concrete so that they would not be damaged during drilling to install new utility lines. GPR does not emit harmful radiation, produces virtually no noise, and will not disturb operating equipment, or other workers. It is a perfect tool for determine the presence of obstruction in concrete slabs prior to drilling, and our project managers were able to scan approximately 100 core drill locations in a single day.
Several full-service utility surveying companies have contacted Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. over the years. The surveying companies are frequently looking for an edge over their competitors and ground penetrating radar can often provide that advantage. In this case we were contacted by a surveying company to mobilize to a paper mill located in Jacksonville, FL. The mill had an area roughly 250’ x 700’ in size that they wanted to survey to locate old utilities, concrete foundations, a live fire line, and a live water line. This area of the facility was extremely dilapidated and decomposing. Large abandon buildings, foundations, etc. were protruding from the ground and debris was scattered everywhere. GPRS is often faced with the challenge of surveying difficult terrain and this site was no different.
