To ensure the overall timely success of you project, utility detection is critical to any construction project where a subsurface excavation is planned. If this critical first step is ignored, the risk for injury increases, budget overruns can multiply and your schedule can be delayed.
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 Fort Worth Area
GPRS locates utilities, scans concrete and provides video pipe inspections throughout Fort Worth and the state of Texas. We use cable avoidance tools to assist in locating buried electrical, water, gas, communication, sewer and storm drain lines in underground facilities. GPRS focuses on damage prevention and reducing the risk of injury to personnel and damage to utilities.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Texas was contacted by an environmental firm to mark out any underground utilities or obstructions within the proposed boring locations in Amarillo, TX. Wade Vickers of GPRS Texas mobilized to the site and gave a precise location of the electric, communications, gas and water lines within a 20’ x 20’ area of each estimated boring location. Since GPR shows data in real time, the results were marked directly onto the surface using marking paint to give the customer and workers knowledge of the utilities location beneath the surface. After the GPRS process was complete, multiple locations were adjusted to avoid any underground conflicts. This saved the firm and drillers costly setbacks, and possible injuries.
During a utility relocation project in downtown Austin, TX, contractors brought Corey Brecht with GPRS out to the site to help them identify deep utilities such as sewer lines. Previous excavations to install these utilities left behind deviations in the subgrade that were identifiable with GPR. This helped the construction crew identify the precise location of the deep utilities.
Prior to drilling holes through a roof deck to install new storm drains, plumbers on site decided to contact GPRS to locate post tension cables first. Central Texas Regional Manager, Corey Brecht, was able to use non-destructive GPR testing to identify critical reinforcing steel and other obstructions within the concrete so that the plumbers could core through the deck safely.
