GPR used to locate Post Tension in a high rise in Tempe, AZ.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Phoenix, AZ. was contacted by a general contractor to locate PT cables in a high rise building for one spot for a 2” core drill. The customer was aware of the reinforcement in the slab in this particular area from photos prior to pouring concrete, however the customer needed to be sure of what was there by using GPRS. GPRS was quick to respond to this project to help the customer in a timely manner. GPRS was able to identify all obstructions in the slab so that the customer could feel reassured that there was indeed an area in which the 2” core could be drilled. All of this was accomplished by using a 1600 antenna. By having GPRS on site for the scanning, it allowed the customers schedule to stay on time with this project and kept them from hitting any reinforcement in the concrete slab.

Ground Penetrating Radar is ideal on a busy construction site as well as a place of occupancy. GPR does not require evacuation of the area as does traditional x-ray concrete imaging. GPR emits no radiation and is completely safe to be around. Traditional x-ray is mostly done after hours; GPR can be done during normal business hours. All data findings are marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for the easiest interpretation of the scanning provided, with GPR there is no wait for developing films as with traditional x-ray. Only one side of the slab is needed for scanning so time and resources are much more ideal for tight schedules of projects. Ground Penetrating Radar is the new way to x-ray!
