GPRS Scans for Conduits at Football Stadium – Dallas, Texas

GPRS Scans for Conduits at Football Stadium – Dallas, Texas

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was contacted by a general contractor to locate the conduits inside a suspended slab at the Cowboys football stadium in Dallas, Texas. The contractor needed multiple core drills and anchor locations cleared for the ventilation and piping for the new restaurant opening in the stadium. Concerned about hitting a conduit and shutting down sections of the stadium, or the entire stadium itself, the contractor called upon GPRS to locate all the electrical inside the slab before making any penetrations.

All findings were marked directly on the concrete at customers request for easy interpretation. GPR was ideal for this application due to the active work site in the surrounding areas.

Conduit Mapping at Hospital – Longview, TX

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was contacted by a general contractor to locate the conduits running through a commercial slab of concrete and make sure there were no post tension cables running in the slab inside a hospital in Longview, Texas. The GC was concerned of the safety issues with his contractors hitting an electrical conduit while saw cutting the hundreds of feet to trench in the new piping for the new kitchen. It was crucial that Ground Penetrating Radar Systems located the entire conduit system because serious problems could arise if there were electrical issues within the hospital.

GPRS was able to come on site within 24hrs of the requested job and safely locate the type of reinforcement running through the slab reassuring the general contractor that there was no post tension and locating the conduits running inside the slab of concrete. It is becoming the norm for hospitals to request locates before any kind of digging, cutting, drilling, or any other penetrations on site due to the safety concerns and the financial benefits of being preventative. GPRS is a key element when compared to the cost of replacing or fixing lines that have been penetrated. To save time and money, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems is ideal for both.
