Post Tension Cable Locate - Denver, ColoradoPost Tension
Cable Locate
- Denver, Colorado

GPRS, Inc. of Denver, CO was contacted by CANV Construction Company of Las Vegas, NV to locate post tension cables at a new apartment building in Denver, CO. The customer was looking to penetrate the slab to install railing and did not wish to strike tendons while penetrating the slab with anchor bolts. The customer did not wish to strike the post tension cables in the slab, causing damage to the structural integrity of the building then causing expensive repairs or even injuring personnel on site. The customer decided to use Ground Penetrating Radar in this situation as the slab was over grade. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. arrived on site at the customer’s earliest convenience to supply concrete imaging and alleviate their worries. We understand in this business our customers don’t need us in a week, they need us yesterday; we do everything we can to make that happen.

Ground Penetrating Radar was ideal on this site as it was an occupied apartment building with many construction employees 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!
