GPRS Performs Investigative Concrete Analysis for Guard Rails - Chicago, IL

A contractor investigating the structural components of a new condominium and parking garage building in Downtown Chicago contacted Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Chicago for concrete scanning. The contractor hoped to find valuable information about the reinforcing of the parking garage floor in order to design the anchoring plates for guard rails and future modifications. Because they inquired that GPRS came out and scanned, they can be more comfortable and confident in their future anchoring.

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.
