Undergrounding utilities, either with a
concrete slab indoors or outdoors before getting down to work, is a must,
especially when it comes to mapping and surveying the site of your project. To
identify subsurface utilities including buried fiber optics, asphalt, concrete,
terracotta, composite pipes, gas lines and plastic water pipes, GPR which is
designed using the latest GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) technology, is the
only non intrusive method you can use.
To display, on a screen, a live image showing
the position and depth of the object or pipe in question, GPR uses the same
working principle used by sonar devices fitted on boats, a receiver is used to
detect and record a “backscattered” signal. GPR is a remarkable piece of
technology designed for construction purposes when paired with vacuum
Within The Schedule of the Project
Contractors, architects and engineers spend
massive amounts of time planning around tight project schedules.
Unexpected occurrences, such as when an electrical
conduit is cut when drilling into a concrete slab or a utility pipe is damaged
during the excavation phase, are considered to be among the biggest project
management issued you can encounter. To help you steer clear of such costly
mistakes, vacuum excavation technology and (GPR) Ground Penetrating Radar were
To ensure that you dig or drill confidently,
GPR service can assist you with locating any equipment and utility pipes buried
in concrete slabs or the earth, giving you a clear picture of the specific
location of services and utilities before the commencement of core drilling.
Within The Projects Set Budget
Due to the ever increasing level of
competition in the construction and maintenance industries, budgets and
schedules are tighter than ever before. This means that your profits might take
a massive hit if anything were to go wrong. Fiber optic cable repairs can cost
anywhere between thousands and tens of thousands of dollars, for instance.
If you have to pay affected businesses for
causing any service interruption in addition to the cost of hiring workers and
buying materials to conduct repairs, your budget is bound to take a massive
hit. As such, the profitability of the project at hand is influenced by the
occurrence or absence of unexpected issues.
By helping eliminate your chances of causing
downtime for local businesses or your workers means that GPR can create
substantial cost savings for your project.
Well Informed Decisions
You also get all the information you need to
create and make adjustments to construction plans, in addition to staying
within the project budget and schedule, by mapping buried objects and utilities
at the site.
To help you effectively integrate the
information obtained as quickly as possible in making calculated decisions and
your construction plans before and during project execution, the information
and knowledge provided through our ground probing radar surveys service can be
transferred to BIM models and CAD files among others.
Bring Site And Personal Safety Risks To The Lowest Possible Levels
It is one thing to use our GPR information to
control costs by properly planning your construction site, but minimizing the
safety risks faced by your workers by knowing the location of things like
underground utilities is entirely different.
Safety is by far the number one concern on
construction sites these days. This can be the safety of your workers, the
local community or the teams in charge of the maintenance of the site after
your work is done. Contractors are now promising the delivery of projects that
are injury free, on top of the higher occupational health and safety being adopted
by the workers’ unions and the government as well.
