GPR Used To Locate Rebar And Live Current Conduit - Denver, Colorado

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Denver, CO was contacted by The Weitz Company of Denver Colorado to locate rebar, metal decking and live current conduit. The Weitz Company needed GPRS to scan and locate reinforcement and conduit to core drill three locations for electric and gas lines. The cores were needed to insert the gas and electric lines for outdoor fireplaces. GPRS went out to scan and locate rebar, metal decking and live current conduit although because there was a top pour of concrete GPR was not seeing all the way through to the metal decking. GPRS was able to locate the rebar and conduit in a fast and reliable manner.

GPRS used a GSSI 1600 MHz Antenna and (RD) Radio-detection Device (a live current locator) to locate the rebar and live current conduit. All findings were marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for easy interpretation with permanent marker and orange paint. GPR was needed for this job to keep the customer from core drilling through live current conduit. Ground Penetrating Radar was successful for an accurate and safe placing of the cores without hitting any live current conduit or rebar.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems has helped reduce cost by limiting the chance for expensive job downtime or setbacks due to structure damage, facility shutdown for severed utility line, or worker injury. Ground Penetrating Radar is also safe to be around while concrete imaging is taking place, emitting no radiation. GPRS can perform surveys on large or small areas to locate post tension cables, rebar/reinforcement layouts and underground storage tank locations.
