Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was contacted by a general contractor to locate all of the rebar in multiple locations of a suspended slab. The contract was putting in heating tubing to melt the snow off the slab in the winter time. The contractor needed to core drill every twelve inches. He was worried about the structural integrity of the slab with that many core drills running through it. The contractor wanted to miss as much rebar as possible. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems came out and successfully located all of the rebar in the specific locations.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems used a GSSI 1600 MHz antenna for this application to locate the reinforcement. All findings were marked directly on the concrete at the customer’s request for easy interpretation. GPR was ideal for this application due to the active work site in the surrounding areas. GPR emits no radiation and is safe for others to work in the area near the scan location.

X-ray has also been used in Provo, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Orem. Sonar has also been used to locate utilities in Heber City, Price, Vernal, and Spanish Fork.
