Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Denver, CO was contacted by Viking Electric of Arvada, CO to locate possible conduit in cast in place concrete slab. The customer was looking to penetrate the slab with core drill to install an additional floor outlet in an apartment building in downtown Denver. The customer did not wish to strike conduit in the slab which would cause expensive repairs and even possibly injure personnel. GPRS, Inc. arrived on site without delay to provide concrete imaging services for the customer in a time efficient and cost effective manner.
Ground Penetrating Radar was ideal on this site as it was an occupied apartment building with many people in the building. 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 xray 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 xray. 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!
