A contractor needed to drill penetrations through an elevated slab with post-tension cables in Key West, FL and embedded electrical conduits to install electrical lines. The area that needed to be scanned, using ground penetrating radar, was located in a condominium master bedroom on the 3rd floor. Thus they contacted specialists in concrete scanning, GPRS. This is an ideal application for ground penetrating radar as conduits and post-tension cable locating are GPR specialties. GPRS, LLC. in South Florida took the call and mobilized to the site.
On site, GPRS was able to identify all the obstructions quickly and accurately. Ron Anderson clearly marked all post-tension cables and conduits directly on the slab. GPRS then collaborated with the contractor, as to the best places to drill to avoid striking a conduit or a post-tension cable. The project was a success and why radar is “The New Way to X-Ray”.
Concrete scanning for the purposes of identifying the location of rebar, post-tension cables, beams and electrical conduits is a very frequent service performed by the GPR Project Managers at GPRS, LLC.
