Ground Penetrating Radar Scan Performed to Locate Rebar and Conduit in Newport Beach, California

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Southern California was contacted by an large general contractor to scan 50 core drilling locations for plumbing and electrical at a hotel in Newport Beach, CA.  The contractor was not allowed to damage rebar during core drilling and especially did not want to drill through one of the numerous electrical conduits that were embedded in the slab.  GPRS was able to locate and mark the upper and lower layers of rebar onto the surface of the concrete so that the core could be performed without cutting through rebar.  GPR was also used to locating plastic/PVC conduits in the slab.  Conduits were found within the slab at almost every proposed core drilling location.  The conduits were labeled on the surface.  Unlike conventioan X-Ray, GPR is not limited to a specific size of area at each location.  We were able to scan at least a 2’x2’ area at each location so that the contractor would have safe options for drilling.
