GPRS of Colorado, the experts in GPR, was recently contacted to locate reinforcement and conduits on a bridge in downtown Denver prior to anchors being installed. The customer needed to be confident that while drilling for their anchors that they were not going to strike anything in the concrete. They chose to use Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Denver to accomplish this task.
The area that the customer was concerned with was on a parapet wall along the edge of a bridge. GPR was ideal for this project because Surface Penetrating Radar is safe for other people to be working around and does not emit any radiation as with traditional x-ray. This was important to the general contractor due to tight timelines on this project, and public in the area that the work was being performed. The technician was able to image the concrete in Colorado quickly and efficiently and mark all findings on the surface in real time so that the customer could meet all deadlines. GPR is the new way to x-ray concrete.
Not only can GPRS locate anomalies in parapet walls, we offer other non-destructive testing such as locating conduits in apartments in Denver, or clearing boring locations in Loveland, Colorado. GPRS also has an office in Tucson, Arizona for your concrete imaging needs. Call your local representative Adam Rock at 303.775.8270 to schedule an appointment today.
