Ground Penetrating Radar Scan Performed to Locate Rebar and Post Tension in San Francisco Bay Area, CA

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. – GPRS – of Northern California was contacted by a general contractor to scan core drilling locations for plumbing and electrical at a hotel in East Bay area, CA.  The contractor was not allowed to damage rebar during core drilling and especially did not want to drill through one of the numerous post tension cables 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 post tension or rebar.  Unlike conventional 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.

Ground Penetrating Radar is a great tool to scan areas for post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes and can also be used to locate underground utilities prior to digging or excavating.  Please contact Ground Penetrating Radar Systems – GPRS to learn how we can assist with your project.
