Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Wisconsin was contacted by general contractor to scan areas for new plumbing at a General Mitchell International Airport. The airport is adding a Starbucks Coffee to its line of stores and restaurants within the terminal for travelers. New plumbing needed to be added to accommodate equipment and layout. GPRS was asked to scan areas for potential conduits in the active store as well as provide information about the elevated slab. GPRS identified portions of the slab to be precast hollow core as well as areas of Twin-T slab. GPRS was able to identify the critical targets and advise the contractor safe places to cut/core. GPRS was able to clear the cores/cuts and identify the critical targets. This led to the project staying on budget, on time, and safe.
Ground penetrating radar is a great tool to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes and can also be used to locate underground utilities prior to digging or excavating.
