Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. of Phoenix, AZ. was contacted by a solar contractor in Tucson, AZ. to locate PT cables on an outdoor basketball court. The contractor was looking to install multiple support columns to carry the load of new solar panels over top of a basketball court at a park in Tucson. Four of the columns were to run between the two basketball courts through the concrete. It was very important to scan this area prior to cutting the concrete for the install of these columns to avoid cutting into any Post Tension cables. Once scanning the four locations we were able to show the client that where they wanted to install the columns, it was loaded with approximately six post tension cables running the entire length of the basketball court. This information was very important to the client to help determine if they are able to install the columns in these exact locations or not.
