GPRS was contracted by a Private Jet Charter company to scan the existing slab on grade for possible voids under the slab at an airplane hangar. These scans were conducted in areas in which the hanger had water issues. The areas of concern were marked out and investigated in order to ensure the safety of the facility housing a variety of multi-million-dollar planes.
All scanning conducted was also implemented through our SIM process. Click on this link to learn more about our industry leading SIM training and processes!
Our state of the art GSSI GPR equipment can send signals into concrete that send data back in real time. The signals are safe for workplaces so there is no need for any stop in work for floors below or around the scan areas. GPRS also uses the RD-8100 Locator to locate live power and radio frequency (RF) signals underground. We can also detect utilities in or under concrete using our transmitter box which sends out a frequency via induction or conduction with an exposed or known surface utility line.
“GPRS deploys the best equipment operated by skilled project managers who know how solve your subsurface locating issue. Since our inception, GPRS has completed hundreds of thousands of projects in North America. Our accuracy rate on these projects? Over 99%.” (www.gprsinc.com)
GPRS Project Managers are commonly called to perform a wide array of locating tasks, such as concrete scanning for rebar, mesh, conduits, radiant tube heating, post tension cables, and any other utility that may be buried. We also scan for private and public utility locates, underground voids or vaults, footings, buried foundations, and Underground Storage Tanks (UST’s). All these tasks are all done in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive manner.
Scan before you plan! This ensures worker safety and saves valuable time by targeting specific areas of concern. GPRS can provide non-survey grade GPS reports overlaid on Google Earth or overlay information on pre-existing CAD files for future building plans.
