Plastic Conduit and Rebar Locating Prior to Drilling for Dowels - North Vancouver, British Columbia

GPRS Enterprises Inc. of British Columbia was contacting by a local general contractor in the North Vancouver area to locate plastic conduits and rebar prior to drilling in order to install dowels. The slab contained a large number of plastic conduits that needed to be precisely located, as many of them were live and carrying electrical current. One of the conduits (pictured below) was located within an inch of two potential drilling locations. The information provided by GPRS allowed the contractor to shift the drilling locations, avoiding a potentially dangerous electrical line hit.
