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.

A customer recently had a pothole surface in their parking lot. The customer was not sure what the root cause of the pothole was and decided to call our CCTV inspection services department to use the cctv robotic crawler system in the surrounding storm pipes. The NASSCO certified project manager arrived onsite and discovered major issues in the pipeline below the parking lot that could have led to major issues. The CCTV inspection services project manager discovered major voids underneath the asphalt surface as well as corrosion within the pipes. High quality video footage was sent directly to the customer in order to reveal the issues at hand.
GPRS video pipe inspection department was recently hired by a plumbing company to locate a residential sewer lateral from the mainline sewer in the street. The homeowner was having issues with their plumbing recently and decided they were going to tie into the lateral but did not have an idea where the lateral was located in the street. The customer had no maps or plans but needed an exact location of where the lateral was so they can begin their construction to dig down and tie into it. GPRS Video Pipe Inspection department was able to find the city maps and locate the mainline sewer pipe segment directly in front of the customers home.
GPRS was tasked with locating and marking all the underground utilities within a scan area of about 3,000 square feet. The client intended to drill soil borings at 10 individual locations upon completion of our investigation. The client also requested keeping an eye out for potential underground storage tanks whose existence could not be confirmed by prior owners of the property. Technologies used during the site investigation included the GSSI Utility Scan with a 400 MHz antenna, as well as the Vivax EM Pipe Locator.
