Real Time Results Concrete Scanning Project - Phoenix, AZ
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Arizona was contacted by a local construction company to scan 18 proposed core drilling locations and CMU wall saw-cutting at large commercial facility that was under renovation in Phoenix, AZ. For this project, a GPRS Project Manager was able to meet the quick turnaround time needed to accomplish the job and, we were able to schedule and complete the task within twenty-four hours of being notified of the need.
The client needed to make 18 core drilling penetrations ranging from 6 inches to 24 inches in diameter in multiple buildings on site. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was able to locate, structural reinforcements and conduits located within the concrete slab and CMU (concrete masonry unit) walls to allow for safe cutting and drilling.
This was critical to preventing any compromise of the structural integrity of the building and also preventing any injury to the individual using the drilling cutting equipment. It was essential that all reinforcements were located as well as live power lines and any other possible utilities. Any damage during core drilling or saw cutting into a wall would not only be dangerous but also costly.
GPRS also holds a wide variety of scanning radar equipment, such as specially sized GPR scanners to scan the concrete in confined spaces that typically cannot be reached. This allowed more options for the client to decide where to drill in order to complete the work they needed.
Ground penetrating radar is a fantastic tool to scan areas of concrete to locate post-tensioned cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes. Ground penetrating Radar can also be used for locating underground utilities such as water, gas, electrical, communication, sewer, and other objects prior to digging or excavating. Working with GPRS also offers each client a “one-stop shop” solution for not only their locating needs but also for concrete drilling and cutting. These services most often go hand in hand and are often needed quickly with little or zero notice. GPRS can help to streamline each job’s demanding needs by assisting with ground penetrating radar services as well as concrete cutting and drilling solutions.
