Say hello to the leadership team behind Echo GPR Services.
Rick Norland, P.E. graduated the University of Idaho in 1976. Rick very quickly was in the diamond industry as an engineer and manufacturer of specialized industrial diamonds in the construction industry.
His extensive knowledge and industry acumen has lead Rick to be a 5 term CSDA board member and CSDA President. In 2000 he founded Construction Solutions as a division of Diamant Boart, Inc as a precision demolition/consulting division. In July 2002 Electrolux purchased Diamant Boart resulting in the sale of Construction Solutions to Ricks Norland in Sept, 2002.
From this transformation Construction Solutions has continued to supply consultation to the precision demolition industry. Since January of 2003, Construction Solutions has supplied Ground Penetrating Radar services to the precision demolition industry.
In 2018 Construction Solutions was renamed to Echo GPR Services. Currently Echo GPR Services has performed over 6,000 surveys resulting in rapid growth for these services.
