Concrete Scanning for Steel Reinforcement and Conduit Locating Prior
to Anchoring for Column Plates - Scarborough, Ontario

GPRS Enterprises Inc. has provided concrete scanning for several large general contractors at various projects in the downtown Toronto area. For this project, a contractor called us for assistance with a project that they were working at which was located at a luxurious condominium high rise building. After receiving the call from our customer, we promptly mobilized to the job-site. For this project, it was critical to the contractor that they could have an accurate map of all of the steel reinforcements, and conduits that were embedded within the concrete slab in question. The project called for installation of several anchors to be placed into the concrete slab, and prior anchor placement, the contractor wanted a complete record of all of the reinforcements and conduits. Our equipment was able to penetrate through the 12” thick slab, during the scan, we were able to distinguish the top and bottom rebar, and locate live electrical lines that were running through the contractor’s work zone. We scanned all of the proposed locations for the new columns and column plates to that were to be anchored into a suspended concrete slab. GPRS completed this project in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive way, which helped the client stay safe, and on schedule. Once the scanning was completed, GPRS Project Manager Adrian Atkins walked through the scanned areas with the contractor to explain the results of the scan. Additionally, a formal report of our findings was provided to the contractor. This report included photos of the job site, along with the data that was generated by our scanning equipment. The client was then able to submit this report to the owner of the building so that they could the required approval so that they could proceed with their project.
