History of Geophysics GPR
On March 1st 1974, Geophysics GPR International opened its doors. Founding members, France Goupil, Réjean Paul and Richard Reid (GPR), innovators in applied geophysics in Canada, had aimed right.
From the beginning, GPR contributed towards the development of high profile infrastructure projects in Quebec, such as the hydroelectric complexes at James Bay and the Olympic Stadium in Montreal. Over the following years, GPR performed hundreds of significant projects and has seen its reputation grow rapidly around the world.
Since then, the professionals at GPR have made a constant effort to improve on existing geophysical methods and to innovate in order to provide clients and partners with a geophysical expertise among the most advanced in the world.
This advanced expertise allows to contribute towards making any construction, renovation, exploration and exploitation project more efficient, complete and competitive. To date, GPR has performed thousands of projects in over 40 countries.
Mission and profile
Over 40 years ago, Geophysics GPR International started out with a mission to offer comprehensive services in applied geophysics, in the knowledge that modern techniques would accelerate and reduce the cost of engineering projects. The founding members understood that a specialized independent company could optimize the execution of large projects and could make an important contribution to the development of geophysics in Quebec and Canada.
To this day, GPR continues to assist many engineering firms on a variety of projects where geophysical methods are required. Since the beginning, GPR understood that the quality of its services rested not only on its expertise in consulting engineering, but also on state of the art survey equipment and the ability to utilize this equipment to its full potential. Ongoing technological and scientific development has accentuated this fact.
GPR's mission still implies an expertise in consulting engineering and specialised services. The synergy with which GPR meets these requirements demonstrates the specialized expertise, versatility and the practicality of the professionals and technicians of the company. With a multidisciplinary team that has over the years pushed back the boundaries of applied geophysics, GPR remains a valued partner of engineering firms and many other clients. GPR's mission keeps on widening: the firm has and always will apply itself to offert geophysics services that are ideally suited to confront the challenges faced by its clients.
Geophysics GPR International Inc. and its collaborators are present in Canada, Africa and South America.
The GPR team, which is ISO 9001:2008 certified and a member of various national and international professional associations, has participated in hundreds of development and high profile construction projects all around the world.
The highly specialized activities of GPR and the renown of its professionals have allowed the company to carry out a large portion of its activities abroad, since the beginning.
Benefiting from a proven expertise and the excellent reputation of Canadian engineering firms, GPR has had the opportunity to introduce new methods and technologies to many countries, on different continents, putting in place several technology transfer activities abroad.
