GPRS: EXPERTS IN GPR
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC, is the Nashville’s largest company specializing in the detection of underground utilities and the scanning of concrete structures. GPRS has an extensive nationwide network of highly trained and experienced technicians in every major U.S. market. When clients hire GPRS, they have the peace of mind of knowing that they have the most reliable scanning technology on their job site and they'll receive the assistance of a technician who can provide them with the most accurate data. For over a decade, GPRS has been the industry leader by providing outstanding service and cutting edge technology, keeping projects on time, reducing safety risks, and putting our relationships with our clients before profit.
To ensure the overall timely success of your project, utility detection is critical to any construction project where 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)
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.
Whether it's a renovation project or new build construction, 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 striking occurs, repair costs begin to add up, delays creep into your schedule and it creates a safety hazard for your employees.
3D LASER SCANNING
As-built drawings are often out-of-date and inaccurate, leading to unexpected issues and critical delays. 3D laser scanning provides your team with precise point cloud data and 3D BIM models for reliable project planning, reducing the risk of change orders and project delays. Our 3D laser scanning services provide the link between unknown existing conditions and a true digital twin.
A water leak detection company that you can rely on, the GPRS team is here to help. We specialize in industrial, municipal and residential leak detection services. We’re experts in underground water leak detection, and our water loss specialists can quickly determine the root cause of the issue and recommend the appropriate fix. In many instances, including emergencies, we will utilize non-destructive testing (NDT) detection methods, including leak noise correlators, to avoid excavation, saving you money and time.
Mapping & Modeling
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.
FEATURED UTILITY LOCATING STORY
NFL DRAFT UTILITY LOCATE - NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE
You may have watched the NFL draft from your home or favorite sports bar; hopefully you enjoyed it. It was quite a production throughout, but maybe even more amazing was the effort to set the stage for the event! There were thousands of crew members that helped to create the one of a kind stage and environment at the end of Broadway St. in downtown Nashville.
FEATURED CONCRETE SCANNING STORY
GPRS SCANS FOR POST-TENSION CABLES AND CONDUITS IN SLAB
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems’ office in Nashville, TN recently worked with a local plumbing company to help them locate several areas suitable for core drilling through an elevated concrete slab. Working in a new residential building in the Wedgewood area of Nashville, a plumbing company needed to re-position several proposed core drilling locations to accommodate drains and water lines for kitchen and bathroom amenities. Many of the current locations were in or under existing walls and/or beams, making the prospect of coring in these areas very difficult. Rather than accept this risk or expend extra time and resources to have the site plans revised, the plumbing company coordinated with GPRS to scan the proposed areas and mark out rebar, post-tension cables and conduits directly on the slab.
