Concrete and Underground Analysis for Vehicle Lifts in Alexandria

Concrete and Underground Analysis for Vehicle Lifts in AlexandriaA lift company required concrete and underground analysis in Alexandria for multiple garage bays. GPRS scanned around the existing vehicle lifts for any utilities and conduits within and under the concrete slab. GPRS was able to solve all of their questions regarding what was in and under the concrete. All of the findings were mapped directly on the surface for further review and in real time. This was all done in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive way.

GPRS locates Post Tension Cables in Denver

GPRS was contacted recently by Design Mechanical of Louisville Colorado to locate reinforcement and conduits in a slab before cutting the concrete for new plumbing fixtures. The customer needed to be confident that while cutting the concrete they were not going to strike anything in the concrete. They used Ground Penetrating Radar Systems to accomplish this task.

GPRS locates Post Tension Cables in Denver

The area that the customer was concerned with was a suspended slab on an active job site. GPR was ideal for this project because Surface Penetrating Radar is safe for other people to be working around and does not emit any radiation as with traditional x-ray. This was important to the general contractor due to tight timelines on this project. The technician was able to image the concrete quickly and efficiently so that the customer could meet all deadlines. All findings were marked directly on the surface in real time for easy interpretation. GPR is the new way to x-ray.

Not only can GPRS locate anomalies in suspended slabs, we offer other non-destructive testing such as locating conduits in apartments in Denver, or clearing boring locations in Loveland, Colorado. GPRS also has an office in Tucson, Arizona for your concrete imaging needs. Call your local representative Adam Rock at 303.775.8270 to schedule an appointment today.

Concrete Floor Anylisis (Chicago, IL)

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. was contacted to help identify the makeup of the structural reinforcing was in a concrete floor. GPRS identified that the floor had two different styles of reinforcing; slab on grade with wire mesh and in a different location (post tension). GPRS also located an emergency escape tunnel running under the floor in addition to locating a few conduits in the area.

We use the latest ground penetrating technology to provide critical information on utilities, materials, and other potential obstructions within existing structures or underground. Fast and reliable, GPRS provides both two- and three-dimensional images of the scanned areas without delivering any radiation. All of our equipment is registered and meets all standard FCC regulations.

Utilizing GPR reduces risk and cost, promotes a safe work environment, and provides non-destructive testing by locating materials such as concrete, plastic, metal, steel, rock, soil, ice, and pavement. Our client base includes hospitals, universities, surveyors, engineers, homeowners, contractors, environmentalists, and excavators.

Environmental Firms Rely on GPRS Before Taking Soil Samples

Environmental Firms Rely on GPRS Before Taking Soil Samples

Environmental firms in and around Houston rely on the expertise of GPRS to help them steer clear of underground obstructions when taking soil samples. South Texas division regional manager Corey Brecht is pictured above locating an obstruction below the surface near a proposed soil boring location. Whenever you are making any type of penetration into the soil it is critically important that you make sure there are no utilities, storage tanks, or other obstructions in your way. To see how GPRS can help stay safe at your environmental dig site, contact Corey Brecht at 281-728-7025 or email at corey.brecht@gpradar.com.

Private Utility Locate on Military Base

GPRS was contacted recently to work on a large military project in Jacksonville, Florida. The client was installing a new communication tower and needed to directional bore new conduit approximately 11,000 linear feet along current road structure. GPRS scanned the length of the proposed bore line to locate and mark all utilities with depths, in order for the contractor to avoid damaging any current utilities. Gas, Water, Sanitary/sewer, electrical, communication/fiber optic lines were all located along the path. GPS coordinates were taken and all findings were inserted into a CAD file for the records of the contractor.

Utility locating services, like this, allow contractors to complete large complicated projects without the major concern of “What is underground?” GPRS provides a service that answers many previously unanswered questions and provides an ease of mind for those working on projects that include digging, boring, trenching or excavation. In the image below you can see GPRS technician Adam Yunker marking a utility running through the future location of the Communication Tower.

Substation Utility Locating in Cleveland, TN

Substation Utility Locating in Cleveland, TN

GPRS was recently called out to Cleveland, TN to do a utility locate at a TVA substation. The purpose of this scan was to locate any utilities running along a trench for a new electrical conduit. It was unknown what utilities they might encounter while excavating the new trench. Prior to proceeding, they contacted GPRS of Tennessee to gain the information needed to safely excavate so they didn’t compromise any existing lines during the construction process.

We use the latest ground penetrating technology to provide critical information on utilities, materials, and other potential obstructions within existing structures or underground. Fast and reliable, GPRS provides both two- and three-dimensional images of the scanned areas without delivering any radiation. All of our equipment is registered and meets all standard FCC regulations.

GPR Scanning Utilized to Locate Electrical Conduits Prior to Saw Cutting at Hospital in Norwalk, OH

GPR Scanning Utilized to Locate Electrical Conduits Prior to Saw Cutting at Hospital in Norwalk, OH

Contractors are faced everyday with challenges on how to make their job safer. It is not uncommon for contractors to be faced with cutting concrete on renovation projects and with that brings concern for what may be in the concrete. When you consider working in a hospital, there is a hightened sense of concern when drilling or cutting. There is potential for electrical conduits, gas lines, and oxygen lines to be beneath the floor. Cutting one of these lines could be catostrophic to the safety of the working individuals and to the patients within the hospital who depend on these resources.

GPRS recently scanned a section of concrete floor that needed to be saw cut and removed. The radar technology was able to image the concrete and subsurface simultaneously. As anomalies are seen in the data, the technician is able to mark the floor as to their location and depth. The visual markers allowed the contractors to safely cut and removed the concrete without damaging any of these lines.

Void Scan in Pecos, TX

Void Scan in Pecos, TX
This scan was performed at the Pecos high school in Pecos, TX.A water line had been leaking for some time, slowly eroding away the earth around it. There was concern that there would be other voids on the area. David Hagenmayer, with Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc., was called out to identify any remaining voids so the client could properly address them. After a comprehensive scan of the area, it was determined there were no voids and the construction process could then proceed safely.

Ground Penetrating Radar is cost effective, non-hazardous, and provides data in real time.
