New Construction Requires GPRS to Locate Post Tension Cables

GPRS was contacted to locate post tension cables at a newly constructed hotel in downtown Atlanta. An awning is being installed and the location of the post tension cables needed to be properly identified so that they were not hit during the installation process.

With the 1600 MHz antenna, GPRS technician Patrick Moulin was able to scan the area.  The 1600 MHz antenna will typically reach depths from 15”-20”.  A SIR-3000 computer system is what displays the data for interpretation. This project required precise and well defined markings; GPRS was able to properly locate the post tension cables and rebar.

Multiple Voids Located in a New Jersey Firehouse

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Northern New Jersey was contacted by an engineer to locate potential voids in a firehouse in Irvington NJ.  Multiple voids were located under the firehouse and the extent of the voids were marked out for the engineer. The engineer was able to inform the township and write a proposal to fix the issue based on the real-time findings using GPRS.

Ground Penetrating Radar is a great tool to scan areas for Voids, USTs, and underground utilities before drilling for soil borings, digging, or excavating.  GPR can also be used to scan concrete to locate rebar, post tension cables, and conduits, including PVC pipes.  To discuss how GPRS can assist with your project in Irvington and surrounding areas such as Maplewood, Orange, South Orange, West Orange, Newark, Hillside, Union, Weequahic, Upper Clinton Hill, Vauxhall, Springfield, please contact Joe Bernarducci at 848-223-5084 or Joe.Bernarducci@gp-radar.com.  For a full listing of our locations, visit www.gp-radar.com.

GPRS Quickly and Accurately Locates PT Cable in Concrete Slab

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Las Vegas was recently called out to Henderson, Nevada to locate post tension cables within a concrete slab.  The client needed to drill holes through the slab to bring up some utilities and needed to avoid cutting the post tension cables. The technician on site was able to locate the cables and map their position directly on the surface of the concrete in a matter of minutes.

Digital concrete imaging is a quick and easy way to locate post tension cables in concrete prior to saw cutting or core drilling. The process is extremely fast due to its live feed system, which means the targets are mapped out on the surface of the concrete as they are located in real time. GPR does not emit any radiation like traditional x-ray so data can be collected on an active job site.

For more information, to request a quote or schedule your next project in the Las Vegas or St. George area contact your local Project Manager Mike Farrell at Mike.Farrell@GP-Radr.com or 702.573.9228.

GPRS Locates Rebar in Columns at Stambaugh Stadium

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on site to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scan at Stambaugh Stadium in Youngstown, Ohio.  The purpose was to locate all rebar in the columns in order to clear locations to install anchors for the lights.  The rebar was marked on the columns and the lights were able to be safely anchored to the columns.  Hiring GPRS is the best way to confirm the locations of reinforcement and conduits prior to saw cutting or drilling through concrete.

Buried Concrete Detected During a Utility Locate

GPRS was contacted by a contractor in Biloxi, MS to locate known and unknown underground utilities as well as potential pilings and pile caps within the planned area of construction and excavation. All utility-like anomalies that could be located were marked on the surface with their approximate depth as well as color coded when the type of utility could be determined. Additionally, buried concrete similar to pile caps and abandoned parking lots were located within the area. The marks were then captured by a surveyor onsite in order to help aid with pre-construction cost estimates and planning for the project.

20 Concrete Columns Scanned in Wisconsin Barn

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Wisconsin was contacted by a law firm to investigate the rebar in 20 columns of a barn in Madison, WI. The barn had partially collapsed due to misplacement of rebar within the columns on one side of the barn.  The columns that collapsed exposed the rebar and the rebar placement did not meet the specifications for the structure. The columns that collapsed were then repaired to meet the standards required. The client requested that GPRS, Inc. scan the rest of the columns and mark the rebar to confirm the rebar was placed correctly to ensure no more repairs would be required and that the workers and the cattle were safe.

In addition, GPRS was able to use our sister company, True Point Laser Scanning (TPLS) to scan all the columns and the rest of the structure to fully evaluate the building. GPRS has access to 2 GHz Palm antennas which are much smaller than a typical GPR antenna and allow us to scan in much tighter spaces or in areas with limited scanning surfaces.  The Palm antenna was perfect for scanning these columns due to their shape and smaller size.

6 Miles of Gas Line Located to Create Accurate Records

6 Miles of Gas Line Located to Create Accurate Records

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Arizona was contacted by an out of state contractor to locate two gas lines over a distance of six miles.  The purpose of this project was to assist the contractor in creating an accurate map for future reference.  Using a combination of ground penetrating radar technologies (GPR) and Radio Detection (RD), the gas lines were easily located in several locations over the six-mile distance.  Nathan Holscher plotted each section using a Trimble GPS and used the GPS coordinates to provide the client with a comprehensive report and aerial map of the findings.  GPRS saved the client time and money by providing both the locating service and comprehensive report.

GPR is a great tool for locating underground utilities such as water, gas, electrical, communication, sewer, and other objects prior to digging or excavating. GPR can also be used to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes. To learn how we can assist with your next project in Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma, Flagstaff, Prescott, Kingman, and throughout the entire state of Arizona contact Regional Manager Nate Holscher at 480.227.8614 or nate.holscher@gp-radar.com.  For a complete listing of our nationwide locations visit www.gp-radar.com.
