Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Arizona was contacted by a local contractor to locate all rebar, post tension cable, and conduit in several concrete slabs in a downtown high rise tenant improvement project in Phoenix, AZ.
With this large tenant improvement project, the local contractor had the unexpected task to make several core drill holes into the concrete slab with new floorplan modifications. With this large tenant improvement project's changes, it was necessary to survey the floor to ensure that any locations to be core drilled, were clear of causing expensive and dangerous damage to the flooring by hitting these reinforcements.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was immediately contacted to provide digital concrete imaging (ground penetrating radar) as well as radio detection / signal induction technologies to assist in locating all conduit within the slab. GPRS often respond quickly and provide timey results to void delays for the contractor. GPRS was able to survey and mark on site, in real time the locations of all rebar and conduit within the concrete slab. GPRS was able to respond and arrive on site to conduct the concrete survey and provide immediate results. This allowed the contractor to save the critical time needed and avoid delays while confidently and safely core drilling into the concrete floor.
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.
