When Mr. Rooter of Greater Denver needed to saw cut a 200ft trench and miss all conduits and pipes, they called GPRS of Denver. Mr. Rooter needed to stay on a specific schedule to complete the project at a strip-mall in Denver so that the dozens of businesses involved could continue operations. GPRS quickly mobilized to the site in Denver, Colorado and kept the project on schedule.
While on site, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was able to map out the location of the conduits and pipes within the concrete slab and below it. All the locations were scanned using GSSI Ground Penetrating Radar equipment and followed up by Radio Detection to verify the presence of electrical current. All of the data that was collected using both GPR and Radio Detection technologies was marked on the surface. Concrete Scan in Colorado was previously believed to be the only method for seeing into a concrete surface. Using Concrete Scan in Denver at this site was not practical for a couple of reasons. First, the radiation created by multiple x-rays would have been detrimental to the clientele of the businesses adjacent to the hallway being scanned. The second reason is that concrete x-ray needs access to both sides of the concrete structure and this was a slab-on-grade.
