Sourcing and Purchasing the Right GPR Equipment for Surveying

Surveying is one of the most important efforts in a range of industries because it is foundation for making more critical decisions later. Without proper surveying techniques, it can be challenging to build safely or to know when specific essential tasks of maintenance are necessary. With the advent of ground-penetrating radar in small, mobile packages, however, surveyors have an impressive array of new tools at their disposal. At GPR Solutions Limited, our goal is to make it simple for your organisation to acquire these mission-critical tools.

Key Questions to Ask GPR Solutions Limited about Geophysical Survey Equipment

The best place to start the purchasing process is with an in-depth information session. When contacting our team initially, consider bringing these questions to the table:

  • What hardware will work best for the use cases my organisation will encounter most frequently?
  • How deep can this equipment penetrate, and how will I be able to interpret the results?
  • How do we put this equipment to use in a way that consistently generates value for our company?

How Much Do You Know About Structural Surveys?

As a seasoned professional in your industry, you may think you know everything there is to knowing surveying. Ground penetrating radar survey equipment may challenge that. Consider:

  • GPR can make the identification of voids, critical structures, utility lines, far easier and less destructive than older survey methods. When you can beam invisible electromagnetic waves into the walls or the ground and get back an accurate picture of what you can’t see, you can rapidly make plans in response to what you find. A GPR utility survey, for example, can proceed much faster than consulting maps and digging slowly.
  • How much time could you save on every job by redefining the methodologies you use? Adopting GPR can make older and more time-consuming processes obsolete while improving the resolution of the structure you need to examine. Faster, more dependable results equal clients that are happier with your performance — and perhaps even the opportunity to accomplish more each day.
  • Surveying, as you know, seeks to establish a wide range of facts about a structure, but how can you look for what you aren’t expecting? Sometimes, traditional methods can allow essential details to slip through the cracks by mistake. Adopting GPR solutions will enable you to identify concerns that your older methodologies may have otherwise missed.
