Concrete Slab Scan Prior to Core Drilling

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was recently called by a local contractor to a renovation project in Westerville, OH. The contractor was core drilling in order to install new electrical feeds near the columns of the building, and needed to know where they could safely core through the slab. The slab featured pan decking construction; this means that we will mark out the high and low areas and recommend that the contractor drill only in the high locations to avoid hitting a conduit in the low areas of the pan. GPRS, LLC. was able to use GPR equipment to accurately locate and mark the high and low portions of the pan decking, a structural beam, and conduits running across the floor. GPRS, LLC. was able to get to the job in a timely matter so the project could remain on schedule. GPR is an accurate and effective way of locating conduits, rebar, and post tension cables in a concrete slab.
