Steel Reinforcement Found in Concrete Pillars and Beam Prior to Anchoring New Walkway
- Downtown Oklahoma City, OK

During the construction of a new downtown office building and garage, Joshua Henes of GPRS used ground penetrating radar scanning to mark out the existing reinforcement within the concrete pillars and beam. A new walkway was being constructed to cross a downtown street, and was to connect two different parking garages. GPRS marked any reinforcement detected during scanning prior to the general contractors drilling for new anchor points to mount the new pedestrian walkway. All findings during the scanning were marked directly onto the surface using crayon. After scanning all the required areas, GPRS walked through all the areas scanned with the general contractor to explain in detail the markings made on the surface and all the reinforcement found during the scanning process. To reach all of the areas that needed to be scanned, a scissor lift was used and all required fall protection was in place including a safety harness, toe board and spotter. GPRS saved the general contractor significant costs related to damages and possible injuries.
