GPRS was contacted recently by Design Mechanical of Louisville Colorado to locate reinforcement and conduits in a slab before cutting the concrete for new plumbing fixtures. The customer needed to be confident that while cutting the concrete they were not going to strike anything in the concrete. They used Ground Penetrating Radar Systems to accomplish this task.
The area that the customer was concerned with was a suspended slab on an active job site. GPR was ideal for this project because Surface Penetrating Radar is safe for other people to be working around and does not emit any radiation as with traditional x-ray. This was important to the general contractor due to tight timelines on this project. The technician was able to image the concrete quickly and efficiently so that the customer could meet all deadlines. All findings were marked directly on the surface in real time for easy interpretation. GPR is the new way to x-ray.
Not only can GPRS locate anomalies in suspended slabs, we offer other non-destructive testing such as locating conduits in apartments in Denver, or clearing boring locations in Loveland, Colorado. GPRS also has an office in Tucson, Arizona for your concrete imaging needs. Call your local representative Adam Rock at 303.775.8270 to schedule an appointment today.
