The webinar “What GPR can do for concrete cutting sawing and drilling?” was held by IACDS and given by Mr. David Cist, from GSSI.
For decades, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has been saving concrete cutters time, money and lives. In the US especially, large service industries have been built around the speed and accuracy of GPR to protect concrete drillers from making holes in places where they shouldn’t. Sometimes shifting a cut location even a centimeter can help prevent from accidents. Because of this, it is very important to use GPR to ensure everyone’s safety.
