Let’s talk about GPR!
Did you know that Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has been saving lives and saving concrete cutting professionals time and money for decades? First of all… Do you know exactly what GPR is and what it is used for? If these questions have aroused your curiosity, you will love what we are about to propose.

On October 21, between 3pm and 4pm (Brussels time – Central European), IACDS is holding the webinar ‘What GPR can do for concrete sawing and drilling?’. A session that will be given by Mr. David Cist, from GSSI, an expert in the field.

This speaker will first provide an introduction to the subject, reviewing what GPR is, why it is important to perform a pre-sawing and pre-drilling inspection and the techniques that can be used. He will then focus on the use and applications of GPR for sawing and drilling, also presenting some case studies.

Participation in this webinar is completely free for all attendees, they just need to register in advance. For logistical reasons, the number of participants is limited by the platform itself. So, registrations will be accepted in strict order of entry until the technical capacity available is reached for each session.
