GPRS Locates Reinforcement Before Cutting Concrete - Aurora, Colorado

GPRS Locates Reinforcement Before Cutting Concrete - Aurora, Colorado

GPRS was contacted recently by Guarantee Electric of Aurora Colorado to locate reinforcement and conduits in a concrete slab. The customer was cutting a trench to run conduits for a new generator. Before cutting the hole the customer chose to have the concrete imaged using ground penetrating radar to verify the location of conduits and reinforcement. They needed to be assured that while cutting the trench that they were not going to strike anything in the slab. They decided to use Ground Penetrating Radar Systems to accomplish this task.

The area that the customer was cutting was an area of slab on grade. GPR was ideal for this project because GPR only needs access to one side of the slab. Unlike traditional x-ray which needs access to both sides of slab, ground penetrating radar can perform all their work with access to only one side of the slab. The technician was able to image the concrete quickly and efficiently so that the customer could still meet their schedule. GPR is the new way to x-ray.
