Ground Penetrating Radar Scan Minneapolis, Minnesota

Recently, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scan. A nationwide civil engineering company is planning on repaving a portion of a major retail store’s parking lot for their online grocery department. After performing the scan, three utilities were found (Electric, Water, and Sewer).

As a supplement to GPR, we also used radio detection to help identify live power, communication and other utilities that may have a power signal on them. Once the utilities in the area were identified they were marked directly on the surface so the customer will know where the utilities are. After all the utilities were located on this project, the customer was able to install the online grocery pick up parking spaces. Because GPRS was onsite to help identify any anomalies that may be present, the customer was able to repave without striking any existing utilities that may be present.

GPRS knows that you can’t simply use one piece of technology to find all that is below the surface. That is why on each project we complete we use several tools to locate as many critical utilities on your site prior to destructive actions. Locating is more than equipment, it’s the right people paired with the right technologies, following the right processes.

GPRS also specializes in concrete scanning for post tension cables, scanning for conduits in a concrete slab prior to core drilling or just helping identify the structural properties that may be present in an existing concrete wall or slab.

If you feel you may have a project that you could use our services on or may be able to benefit from GPR, you can reach out to me directly with my contact information below.
