GPRS of Dallas Locates PT Cables and Keeps Project Safe and On Schedule

This GPR scan took place on an elevated concrete slab at the new Toyota Headquarters in Plano, TX. The customer needed to install 150 brackets for reinforcement of the glazing of the building. The concrete slab was reinforced with post tensioned (PT) cables which can cause serious injury or damage if struck during drilling. The PT cables needed to be clearly marked before the customer could drill holes for the anchors.

David Hagenmayer with Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc., was contracted to scan the area requested and mark out all PT cables and obstructions in the concrete. David was able to determine the precise locations of the existing lines. The client was then able to safely and effectively drill.

2 Acres Scanned and Utilities Successfully Located at a Hospital

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was recently contacted to locate and map all utilities at Carolina Hospital System’s Florence, SC campus prior to directional boring.

The equipment used in the scan was a 400MHz antenna capable of identifying objects at a depths of up to 6’-7’, a SIR-3000 processing system and RD7000.

While on site, GPRS technician James Ross, scanned 4 locations totaling approximately 2 acres to identify any anomalies that would indicate electrical conduits, water mains, gas lines, and any other pertinent utilities moving through the anticipated path. After further investigation at the suspected site we were able to determine that there were utilities running through the proposed path. Not only could we identify these obstructions, but we also provided accurate depths to each utility.

Utilities Cleared for Several Miles of Proposed Trenching

Recently a local airport hired a utility company to install communication lines to feed their new terminal being constructed. The utility company has a long history of using Ground Penetrating Radar Systems for locating utilities in preparation for directional boring and trenching. The utility company had several miles of trenches to be cleared and GPRS was up to the task.

GPRS used a 400MHz antenna and RD7000 (Radio Detection) to map out the precise locations of all communication, water, sewer, gas and electrical lines.  Ground penetrating radar is an effective and efficient tool for accomplishing these goals and GPRS had the area mapped on the surface of the ground in less than two weeks. After explaining the findings to the on-site contact, a full report was provided to the client for their records. This ensured that the client would have the findings on record for future projects. The clients were more than pleased with the results and the trenches were dug without incident.
