A contractor who was investigating the possible contamination of soil and water at a laundry mat in Huntley, IL contacted Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Chicago for concrete scanning services. The contractor hoped to find out valuable information about the spacing of the reinforcing, and the locations of any conduit in the laundry mat floor prior to preforming several borings. Thanks to calling GPRS, the contractor was able to complete their bore drilling with confidence, and without any mistakes.
GPRS scanning assists contractors by giving them a real time view of the reinforcing and conduit layout helping them to know where they can place certain anchors. GPRS can help you reducing the likelihood of subsurface obstruction strikes during drilling, cutting, trenching, anchoring and other sub-surface applications. Additionally, scanning can save valuable time by targeting specific anomalies/reinforcing to be uncovered and provide depth and location as well as information about the surrounding concrete. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems uses the latest GSSI Sir-3000 technology in locating critical reinforcing in the slab. GPR emits less than 1% of the radiation that has found to be emitted by standard cell phones. This means that operators or persons near the work zone are not subject to hazardous radiation levels.
Along with the GSSI Sir-3000 technology, GPRS uses the RD-8000 Locator to locate live power and RF signals underground. We can also detect utilities in and under concrete via induction or conduction with an exposed or known surface utility line. This is all done in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive way. GPRS specializes in multi-technology investigations, and we employ highly qualified, trained and hardworking individuals who have been trained, and have knowledge about the many different avenues of construction, reinforcement, conduits, slabs, columns, and many other structurally related questions. We guarantee the best service from our managers, with quick response times, quality information / data, great pricing, and enthusiasm.
