Reinforcing Steel Mapped on Elevated Slab with No Permanent Marks Prior to Core Drilling

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was called to scan an elevated concrete slab in Kansas City, MO before core drilling was performed. The client didn’t want any permanent marks on the floor so the technician laid down painters tape wherever there was reinforcement. The technician was able to mark any reinforcement in the slab to allow the contractor to perform his work without striking any anomalies.

Using GPR to scan an area before coring is a smart and effective solution to help avoid conduits, post-tension cables, rebar and other items within the slab. GPRS of Kansas City can also assist in any projects in Lawrence, Topeka, St. Joseph and Springfield areas.
