Before core drilling into an elevated concrete slab for a new restaurant at Logan International Airport in Boston, MA the contractor wanted to identify all electrical conduits, rebar and other critical targets that could potentially be embedded in the slab. The plans called for 8 new floor drains and a grease trap. GPRS was clearly able to identify all rebar, beams, and conduits within the concrete slab efficiently and accurately using ground penetrating radar and a 2000 MHZ specialized concrete antenna. The 2000MHZ antenna is a safe and nondestructive method for locating reinforcement and conduits in concrete. The on-site scanning and marking process was completed within a few hours and the contractor was able to begin the project in a timely fashion and with valuable information of what to expect. Identifying key structural elements within the slab is the only way to ensure safe drilling.
