Renovations at Coors Events Center Require GPR to Locate Reinforcement

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Denver, CO was contacted by the facilities management of The University of Colorado Boulder to locate reinforcement and conduit in a concrete slab at the Coors Events Center in Boulder, CO. The customer was needed to core drill into a concrete slab to install new conduit for renovations in the building. The customer needed to avoid striking any reinforcement and conduit in the slab which would jeopardize the structural integrity of the building and cause costly repairs to existing conduit within the slab. GPRS, Inc. arrived on site to provide digital concrete imaging (Ground Penetrating Radar) for the customer keeping the project on schedule without repairs or any other possible problems.

GPR was ideal on this site as it was a running facility with several employees on site. GPR does not require evacuation of the area as does traditional x-ray concrete imaging because GPR emits no radiation and is completely safe to be around. All data findings are marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for the easiest interpretation of the scanning provided.
