There is only one way to safely cut or core concrete. To prevent damage to concrete slab components, construction professionals must hire a company that specializes in GPR scanning. A concrete radar service provider will use a GPR scanner to identify rebar, post-tension cables, electrical conduits, concrete beams, smurf tubing, and other impediments prior to the core drilling or cutting process. A GPR scanner will use ground penetrating radar and other tools to mark out the sub surface elements – keeping everyone safe, including the GPR scanner.
A GPR scanner at GPRS will use the latest in GPR scanning technology. Project Manager is the chosen title for a professional that performs GPR scanning when working with GPRS. The use of a GPR scanning tool requires extensive training and mentoring. The Project Managers at GPRS will not be able to perform GPRS scanning on your site until they have completed the GPRS Training School SIM 101 class – certifying them as an expert in the field of GPR scanner. Using a GPRS scanner is only a part of the complete locate process. A GPR scanning company must train a gpr scanner to use the proper equipment and also use a tested and proven methodology for the gpr scanning. GPRS subscribes to the Subsurface Investigation Methodology (SIM SPEC) when training employees to be a GPR scanner. The SIM specification specifies certain equipment, training and methodology as it relates to performing ground penetrating radar scanning.
If you find yourself asking, “Is there a GPR Scanning company near me?” or “Is there a GPR Scanner near me?”, you have landed in the right place. GPRS has a GPR scanner near your project and is able to perform GPR scanning no matter how large or small the scope. GPRS is the leader in subsurface scanning solutions and gpr scanning. Trust your need for a GPR scanner on your next construction project. When the time comes to schedule a GPR scanner, GPRS is committed to place a Project Manager on your job site quickly. This ensures that your project can continue safely, on time, and on budget.
Often times, construction projects require and specify the use of concrete x-ray prior to core drilling or saw cutting concrete. GPR scanners at GPRS do not perform concrete x-ray, but the use of GPR scanning is often viewed as an equivalent. A GPR scanner will be able to use a gpr scanner to determine slab contents and ensure a safe core drill or saw cut. GPRS would be happy to bring a GPR scanner to your site to perform a demonstration for building owners or engineers and show the capabilities of ground penetrating radar concrete scanning vs concrete x-ray.
Note: GPRS does not provide geophysical, geological, land surveying or engineering services. If you need such services, please contact an appropriate professional.
