A contractor required to place anchors into the roof of a D.C. penthouse for canopy installation requested Ground Penetrating Radar Systems services to promote the safety and timeliness of the drilling areas of their project. The contractor needed to anchor successfully 7” into the slab. However, without knowing the location of the reinforcing and potential conduits, valuable time could be lost to holes with obstructions and potentially hazardous conduit. GPRS scanning assists contractors by reducing the likelihood of subsurface obstruction strikes during drilling, cutting, trenching, anchoring and other sub-surface applications.
The investigation yielded heavy amounts of reinforcing which impeded many of the prospective location. The drilling could have been exhaustive attempting to locate clear channels for the anchors. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems using GSSI Sir-3000 with the 2000 MHz palm antenna can scan into small areas exposed on rooftops and provide necessary data to minimize delays in rooftop projects. This was all done in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive way. The radar emits radiation less than 1% of that found to be emitted by standard cell phones. This means practically no hazardous radiation to operators or persons above or below the work zone. GPRS Project Managers of D.C./Virginia area committed to 24 hour response times if necessary and provide knowledgeable, professional, collaborative experiences to keep your projects on time and efficient.
If your company needs reinforcing or conduit scanning in the Washington D.C. metro area, including areas such as Arlington, Alexandria, Vienna, Fairfax, Springfield, and anywhere along I-66, I-95, and the beltway with fast response times and easy scheduling, please contact Jeremy Campbell at 571-481-7166 or at Jeremy.Campbell@GP-Radar.com.
