Have you ever been on a project site and it is not what your customers described to you? Have you ever estimated how long your survey will take, but it took 2 or 3 times that amount? What questions should you ask your customers before you agree to conduct a GPR survey to try and avoid these problems in the future?
In this video, I discuss 5 things that you should know before accepting a GPR survey or before answering the likelihood of the project’s success.
These 5 issues are:
1) ground cover
2) site topography
3) soil conditions
4) estimated target size and depth
5) expected deliverables
Knowing these 5 things should give the grounds to make a reliable evaluation of the potential success of the project.
There are other issues that could be helpful. Leave a comment below with something else that you ask your customers before agreeing to survey.
