Ground Penetrating Radar Used to Locate Rebar, Post-Tension Cable and Conduit in Calgary, Alberta

During renovation for a building in downtown Calgary, Alberta, a local general contractor had the unexpected task to relocating sewer drain lines due to floor plan changes. Consequently, to avoid costly repairs and maintain jobsite safety, it was absolutely critical to locate all structural steel, cable and power conduit before any core drilling would take place. Moreover, with the urgent nature of this change, due to tight construction timeframes, it was imperative that this issue would be resolved as quickly as possible.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) Enterprises Inc. in Calgary was contacted for the job. A technician was able to arrive on site within 24 hours to conduct the survey and provide digital concrete imaging (GPR) as well as Radio Detection technologies to assist in locating all critical targets within the slab. The locations of all column caps, rebar, post-tension cables and conduits within the concrete slab are marked on site, in real time. This allowed the contractor to save the critical time needed and avoid delays while confidently and safely core drilling into the concrete floor.

Ground Penetrating Radar mapping is a great tool to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes. Ground penetrating radar can also be used to locate underground utilities such as water, gas, electrical, communication, sewer and other objects such as Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) prior to digging or excavating.
GPRS Enterprises Inc. provides such services in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer and surrounding areas. The company also performs GPR surveys in Toronto and Vancouver as well as throughout the United States.
