The project required us to use a vehicle mounted GPR system, however we were uniquely positioned to offer Balfour Beatty and VINCI a more innovative solution: the Mira system. This is the first commercially available GPR system of its kind, and currently the only one in operation in the U.K.
The Mira system collects 3D GPR data in real time. It has 16 antennas that work collectively to gather data at a spatial resolution of 8 x 8 cm, allowing large areas to be mapped with incredible precision.
Driven at 20mph, our high tech vehicle mounted GPR system enabled us to collect data quickly and efficiently on the M4 and the adjoining side roads and structures.
For minimum traffic disruption, most of the work was carried out at night, and we worked with traffic management companies to enforce either full closures or lane closures on the motorway stretches, as required.
High-precision, processed GPR data, that our client could trust.
Balfour Beatty and VINCI incorporated our GPR data onto their existing utility drawings to ensure their utility survey met PAS128 M4P standards.
