Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Phoenix, AZ. was contacted by a local environmental firm to clear some areas inside of a factory in order to drill for soil samples. When doing this type of locate, we need to utilize two types of scanners so that we can see what lies within the concrete and what lies beneath it. This factory has machinery that requires a bunch of electrical to operate it and the last thing you want to do is to drill through a live conduit and potentially hurt someone or even to shut down part of the factory. GPRS was able to use multiple methods of locating to be sure that the drillers would not drill through an underground utility line. It was a good thing that they hired us because otherwise they would have drilled right through some main power in a few of their locations. Anytime you need to penetrate the ground or through concrete then you should always contact GPRS to make sure that particular location is clear of obstructions.
Ground Penetrating Radar is ideal on a busy construction site as well as a place of occupancy. GPR does not require evacuation of the area as does traditional x-ray concrete imaging. GPR emits no radiation and is completely safe to be around. Traditional x-ray is mostly done after hours; GPR can be done during normal business hours. All data findings are marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for the easiest interpretation of the scanning provided, with GPR there is no wait for developing films as with traditional x-ray. Only one side of the slab is needed for scanning so time and resources are much more ideal for tight schedules of projects. Ground Penetrating Radar is the new way to x-ray!
