Ground Penetrating Radar Used to Locate Rebar at the Ritz Carlton - Phoenix, Arizona
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Arizona was contacted by a local contractor to locate all rebar and conduit in the flooring on all floors in the famous Ritz Carlton Hotel in Phoenix, AZ.
The local contractor had difficulty determining where they could safely core drill into various floor locations for a major hotel overhaul project. In this case, all hotel rooms were receiving upgraded showers, replacing all bathtubs with walk-in showers. This required relocation of all shower drain lines for all 300+ rooms. The client and contractor had an extremely limited timeframe to complete this project as the entire hotel needed to be closed for business during this renovation. Timeliness was critical factor in order to complete this high volume work at short notice and with a quick turnaround.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. is very familiar with high volume projects and was able to completely scan all needed areas for all 300+ hotel rooms before the contractor's deadline. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems arrived on site and used both ground penetrating radar to locate all rebar and conduit in the concrete slabs. GPRS also used radio detection / signal induction technologies to assist in locating all conduit within the slab. This enabled the general contractor to safely and quickly find out where to core drill into the concrete while eliminating costly repairs by avoiding breakages of any concrete rebar or conduit lines.
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.
