Construction safety is a crucial aspect of the industry. If safety isn’t continually practiced, there can be severe consequences. GPRS is dedicated to promoting safe construction practices, and we want to inform and educate others on how to complete a safe site excavation.
SIM or Subsurface Investigation Methodology aims to raise the quality of private subsurface investigation results by creating industry specifications. These specifications combine the requirements of experienced-based training, tested technologies, and proven application methods. The combination results in an industry standard for non-destructive investigation of underground utilities, scanning concrete, and now VPI. SIM as a standard will ensure safety, limit damage to underground and structural assets, and increase locator contractor accountability on site.
Subsurface Investigation Methodology is the most comprehensive specification in the subsurface damage prevention industry.
It’s common for companies to purchase buildings and facilities for future business endeavors, but these buildings’ utilities are often not adequately marked. Poorly marked utilities can pose a severe hazard for facility managers, builders, and safety directors. Knowing where utilities and pipes are with certainty is an essential part of maintaining a safe facility and job site.
GPRS identifies and maps utilities and pipes through our state-of-the-art video pipe inspection equipment and our highly skilled Project Managers.
