Ground Penetrating Radar Scan Performed at a Bank

Ventura, CA

This image shows the scanned area; all conduits were labeled with the depth and direction they were heading.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of California was contacted by a construction company to locate conduit and utilities in the slab prior to saw cutting. We were asked to scan 3’ on both sides of a 20’ long saw cutting path. We marked all findings on the slab with crayon, tape and marker. We also provided depths and a thorough explanation of all findings. We found that in the area we scanned, several conduits were running on angles and varied in depths of 2”-8” deep.

Due to the bank’s business hours, our client asked us to perform our GPR service in the evening/night hours as they are only allowed access during the bank’s closed hours. We used our 1600 MHz antenna and Radio Detection to locate all conduits and utilities.

Ground Penetrating Radar Mapping 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.
