Ground Penetrating Radar Scan performed at T4 LAX

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Southern California was contacted by an electrical company in order to scan for reinforcing or conduits prior to core drilling for an office cubicle improvement. We found that the slab consisted of 6” on center wire mesh with an 8” thick metal decking slab. We marked all high spots of the metal decking with blue tape and all low spots with red tape; in this location we found no signs of conduits. We advised the customer to drill only on the high spots of the metal decking to avoid possible conduits that may be running on the low parts of the deck where it’s harder to see and also to reduce the thickness of the concrete that is to be cored to 4”. We performed this work during the night, while the office cubicles were unattended.

GPR scanning is a great tool to use for post tension cables, rebar, and conduits; it can also be used to scan for underground utilities prior to digging or excavating. GPRS has offices throughout the entire state of California and performs projects in cities like; Ventura, Santa Barbara, Thousand Oaks, San Luis Obispo, Bakersfield, Lancaster and the greater Los Angeles area.
