Crane Collapse Requires Additional Crane; GPRS Scans for Voids Prior to Placement

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Denver, CO was contacted to locate subsurface voids after a crane fell through an unknown cellar. GPRS was required to scan and locate voids prior to setting up another crane to pick up the fallen crane. GPRS mobilized to locate voids with a GSSI 400 MHz. antenna

All findings were marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for easy interpretation with white paint, whiskers and GPS Coordinates. Ground Penetrating Radar was needed for this job to inform the customer where they can safely place another crane. Ground Penetrating Radar was successful in laying out all areas of concern prior to setting up the crane.

GPRS uses safe and cost effective methods to conduct GPR investigations. GPR is safe to be around while concrete imaging is taking place, emitting no radiation. GPRS can perform concrete imaging investigations on large or small areas to locate PT cables, rebar, UST’s, pipes, conduits and utilities. If you need a similar concrete imaging scan or thermal imaging done on your job site contact Project Manager Kevin Salazar at 720-498-3834 or e-mail at for the surrounding Denver counties such as Arapahoe, Centennial, Adams, Jefferson and Douglas.
