Ground Penetrating Radar Scan Performed to Locate Rebar And Conduit
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. (GPRS) of Las Vegas was contacted by a large general contractor to scan 19 core drilling locations prior to installation of new piping at The Gramercy in Las Vegas, NV. The contractor was not allowed to damage rebar during core drilling and especially did not want to drill through one of the numerous electrical conduits that were embedded in the slab.
GPRS was able to locate and mark the rebar and conduits onto the surface of the concrete so that the core drilling could be performed without cutting through them. Unlike conventional X-Ray, GPR is not limited to a specific size of area at each location. We were able to scan a 2’x7’ area at each location so that the contractor would have safe options for drilling.
Ground Penetrating Radar is a great tool to scan areas for post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes and can also be used to locate underground utilities prior to digging or excavating.
