Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Arizona was contacted by a major national general contractor to locate rebar within the vertical concrete wall of a new high rise project in downtown Phoenix, AZ This downtown project required the installation of a new water line that needed to pass through a cast in place concrete wall. It was critical to avoiding hitting and damaging all structural rebar within this load bearing wall. The contractor had no option to work around this structure and was forced to core drill to allow for the pipe to pass through the wall.
With Ground Penetrating Radar Systems' trusted history of accurately locating structural steel within concrete on dozens of previous projects for this major contractor, GPRS was immediately called upon for this unexpected and urgent work. GPRS arrived on site within 24 hours to provide digital concrete imaging (ground penetrating radar) to provide illustrations marked directly on site in real time, to provide an accurate mapping of the rebar beneath the concrete wall's surface. This provided just what the contractor needed, so that they were able to safely core drill though the wall without compromising any structural integrity.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. is very familiar with working closely with countless major commercial projects and contractors. Ground penetrating radar mapping is a great tool to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes. Ground penetrating radar can also be used to locate underground utilities such as water, gas, electrical, communication, sewer, and other objects prior to digging or excavating.
