"We are a very demanding company. We expect the best. We expect things to be executed timely, effectively, with the right people and the right tools, and we know that we are going to get that with GPRS.”
Their employees in the U.S. and 30 other countries embody the legacy of trust that was the cornerstone of Henry Turner’s vision back in 1902. Some 121 years later, “A promise made is a promise delivered,” still rings true for this construction industry titan.
“The construction industry in general really looks toward Turner as a leader. For instance, they don’t call subcontractors ‘subs,’ but Strategic Trade Partners. It’s the Turner Culture; when you work with them, you do feel part of Turner. It’s not 17 different contractors on a site. It’s a Turner job site.”
Your Ground Disturbance Policy provides some measure of control, but only if your subcontractors adhere to it. That’s why it is vital to have accurate and updated as built information that you can share with your team. Because the team with the best data and communications makes the least mistakes.
The CGA’s DIRT Report shows 203,618 unique utility line strikes in 2021 alone.
Every sector saw a substantial increase over the previous year, and 65.81% (134,000) of those strikes were due to poor or missing utility locates and substandard excavation practices.
In the last 21 years, strikes like those have led to $1.7 billion in damages, 1,906 injuries, and 421 deaths on jobsites across the U.S.
Nothing gives you more peace of mind than knowing your team will make it home safe from the jobsite every night. That is why GPRS continues to push the limits of innovation with SiteMap® (patent pending).
SiteMap® allows you to control the accuracy, security, and timeliness of your site infrastructure data by capturing it, geolocating it, cross-referencing and layering it, so that you can see all of your subsurface utility infrastructure at a glance, and securely share that information with the subcontractors who need it.
SiteMap® gives you the power to put the right information into the right hands at exactly the right time to keep everyone on your site safer, your project on time, and your budget under control.Learn More About SiteMap®
