GPRS Locates Post Tension Cables In Twin T's At St Joseph Hospital In Denver Colorado

GPRS was contacted recently by Mortenson Construction of Denver Colorado to locate tension cables in the bottom of manufactured twin t concrete panels at St. Joseph Hospital in Denver Colorado. The customer was doing mock up rooms for their client, and needed to fasten anchor bolts to the sides of the twin t’s. Before anchoring into the beams the customer chose to have the t’s imaged using ground penetrating radar to verify the location of cables before proceeding with installation. They needed to be assured that while drilling holes for their anchor bolts that they were not going to strike any pre tension cables. They decided to use Ground Penetrating Radar Systems to accomplish this task.

The health care facility that the contractor was remodeling was still occupied and active; therefore GPR was ideal for this project because ground penetrating radar does not emit any harmful radiation as with traditional x-ray. All readings can be done without having to disrupt, or relocate the patients around where the work was being performed. GPRS is the new way to x-ray.
