Ground Penetrating Radar Used to Locate and Confirm Rebar

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC., serving the entire state of Arizona and nationwide, was contacted by a major contractor to conduct an investigation of several key areas where concrete coring was to take place, in order to locate all post tension cable and rebar. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, was required to immediately respond within hours of the need, traveling to the job site in Phoenix, AZ.

This particular job was urgently needed, as all construction was halted until it could be proven that post tension (PT) cable, rebar, and any other reinforcement was located in order ensure nothing was damaged during the core drilling process. GPRS was able to provide this urgently needed investigation and confirm the presence of structural rebar without demolition in order to provide the best place to drill where no damage would occur to reinforcement. GPRS was also able to provide a written comprehensive report reflecting all procedures and findings.

Ground Penetrating Radar was ideal on this site as it was a facility that had ongoing construction in progress with many people on site working. GPR does not require evacuation of the area as does traditional "x-ray" concrete imaging. GPR emits no radiation and is completely safe to be near. Traditional "x-ray" is mostly done after hours whereas GPR can be done during normal business hours. All data findings are marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for the easiest interpretation of the scanning provided. With GPR, there is no wait for developing film as with traditional x-ray. Only one side of the slab is needed for scanning, thus time and resources are efficiently save and ideal for tight project schedules or unforeseen emergencies. Ground Penetrating Radar is the new way to "x-ray"!
