Southern Hills Middle School in Boulder, CO
GPR Concrete Scan
When Golden Triangle Construction needed to saw cut multiple locations and miss all conduits they called GPRS Denver. GTC needed to stay on a specific schedule to complete the construction at the school so that they could finish major demolition while the students were on spring break. GPRS quickly mobilized to the site in Boulder, 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. All the locations were scanned using GSSI Ground Penetrating Radar equipment and followed up by Radio Detection to verify the presence of electrical current. Shown in the picture below is technician, Jason Schaff tracing the path of gas lines by clamping on to a pipe that was extruding from the floor. This process also uses the Radio Detection Technology. In addition to clearing saw-cutting areas GPRS was able to clear a future coring location and mapped out the locations of rebar and post-tensioning cables on the surface.
All of the data that was collected using both GPR and Radio Detection technologies was marked on the surface. This is a very fast process and safe for the person saw-cutting or coring as there is no question where the impediments are located.
Jason Schaff runs GPRS operations in the Mountain Region of the United States. He is based in Denver, CO and he can be reached at (303) 945-5415 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Concrete scanning for the purposes of identifying the location of rebar and post-tensioning and electrical conduits are the most frequent services performed by the GPR technicians at GPRS.
