With new build construction and renovation project, the likelihood of needing to cut or core concrete is high. There is an inherent risk of striking rebar, conduits, and post tension cables during the cutting or coring process.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems received a call from a local general contractor working in New Orleans, Louisiana with multiple locating needs for an ongoing renovation of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Given the response time and recent/previous experience with the structure, GPRS was able to understand the needs and expectations of the client to keep the project on track. The primary areas of locating consisted of post-tension cables for the demolition of a parking garage as well as locating utilities indoors prior to driving pilings for new elevator shafts.
A customer was not sure at what point the storm pipes made a turn and need help locating it. The customer hired our CCTV inspection services department to use the robotic crawler camera system to determine where the turn was. The NASCCO certified project manager was able to access the pipe and determine at what linear footage there was a turn. Also, the manager located an additional lateral that the customer was unaware of.
GPRS video pipe inspection department was recently hired by a plumbing company to locate a residential sewer lateral from the mainline sewer in the street. The homeowner was having issues with their plumbing recently and decided they were going to tie into the lateral but did not have an idea where the lateral was located in the street. The customer had no maps or plans but needed an exact location of where the lateral was so they can begin their construction to dig down and tie into it.
