Post Tension Cable Locating Project - Charleston, SC

PT Cable Locating in Charleston, SC

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was recently contacted to locate post tension cables and conduits in an elevated slab at the Hyatt Place in downtown Charleston, SC on King St. The equipment used in the scan was a 1600MHz antenna capable of identifying objects at a depth of 8-12 inches, and a SIR-3000 computer system.

While on site, GPRS technician James Ross, scanned one 3’x3’ location to identify any anomalies in the slab that would indicate post tension cable and/or conduits moving through the drillers anticipated core location. After further investigation at the suspected site we were able to determine that there were bands of post tension cable running through the site that the drillers had initially planned to core. Not only could we identify the obstructions, move their cores to safer location, but we also provided accurate depths of each obstruction.
