One Call Program

GPRS exceed industry performance when it comes to the accuracy of our utility locating. Our team of Project Managers can continue the support of your project by crafting a one-call program from when your project transitions to the O&M phase.

Public Property

Damage prevention is critical when excavating in a public right-of-way. Using the 811, call before you dig system, is an essential step to take when trying to avoid underground utility strikes. It's the law! GPRS is able to contract and perform one-call type utility locating for your underground assets.

Private Property

A utility locate on private property is not complete until a private utility locator like GPRS has been called to comprehensively locate the entire campus. GPRS can create a one-call type program for your facility or campus in the case that you have utilities that lie within public property.


GPRS can place our highly trained PMs within your facility or campus to perform utility locating and concrete scanning services. When our PMs are placed within a facility, many benefits realized when compared with our standard services. Our schedule is at your disposal, there is familiarity with site intricacies, and we can manage as-built drawings for the entire site.

As-Built Drawings

As-built utility drawings don't always show the current underground conditions of a site. Drawings that are produced in the design-phase of a project don't always reflect the exact location of underground utilities. Over time, due to renovations, repairs, and additions, as-built drawings become out of date. GPRS PMs are able to update as-built drawings so that they reflect the actual vertical and horizontal position of underground facilities.
