Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was recently contacted by Kiewit General Contractors of Englewood Colorado to locate reinforcement at DIA. The contractor was drilling a hole for fire sprinkler protection and needed to locate rebar and conduits before cutting the slab.
Because DIA is an active airport the contractor was not able to use traditional x-ray. GPR is able to image the concrete without emitting harmful radiation. GPRS was able to mark all rebar, conduits and other obstructions on the floor instantly so the contractor could continue on schedule with their work.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems cannot only locate rebar and conduit in airports during business hours; they can locate post tension cables in high rises in Denver, find utilities in Casper Wyoming, or clear for boring locations in Aurora Colorado.
