Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Ground Penetrating Radar, or more commonly, GPR, is an advanced tool in the hands of today’s professionals. Unlike older x-ray methods, GPR allows professionals to scan and interpret the subsurface in real-time, with no need to wait for a traditional x-ray image to develop. It also comes without the radiation risk of traditional x-ray methods, making it safer, faster, and more cost-effective. It also does not require both sides of the concrete slab to be accessible, a requirement that makes concrete x-ray a near or total impossibility on many construction sites.

GPR has a variety of uses, from private utility location to finding unmarked graves, post tension cables, rebar, and any other obstacle buried in the subsurface. It is a tool of interest not only to general contractors, but also to civil engineers and even archaeologists.
