Concrete Scan at Hospital for Conduit and Rebar - Akron, OH

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on site by a general contractor to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) survey at the Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron, Ohio. The contractor needed to know where the top and bottom rebar were for multiple locations on an elevated slab where core drilling was to be performed. GPRS also located an electrical conduit that could have been cored through in the concrete slab. The contractor was told there was no conduit in the slab. Call GPRS before you saw cut or core drill concrete and we will keep you safe!

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems is the best way to ensure the locations of reinforcement and conduits prior to saw cutting / drilling through concrete. We also have the capabilities of locating underground utilities, UST’s, and voids.
