GPR Used to Locate Conduits and Rebar - Vail, CO

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Denver, CO was contacted by a general contractor based out of Vail, Colorado. The GC was heading up a big remodel job at a hotel in vail during the summer months while the hotel was shut down for the offseason. There had been a lot of water damage done to the main level of the hotel so it was in need of some restoration. A contractor on site was in charge of busting up concrete to replace it and while doing that they cut into some electrical feeders that were embedded in the concrete and ultimately ended up shutting down have of the hotel. Now luckily the hotel was shut down for the summer months. Once this happened the GC called GPRS to come out and locate all of the power conduits located in the slab prior to performing any further saw cuts or core drilling. It was a good thing they called GPRS because we found multiple locations where they would have cored directly through a live electrical conduit, had they not had it located first.

Ground Penetrating Radar is ideal on a busy construction site as well as a place of occupancy. 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 around. Traditional "x-ray" is mostly done after hours; 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 films as with traditional "x-ray". Only one side of the slab is needed for scanning so time and resources are much more ideal for tight schedules of projects. Ground Penetrating Radar is the new way to "x-ray"!
