Concrete Scanning for Reinforcing and Beams - Williamsburg, VA.
An Engineering Firm out of Ashburn, Virginia called Ground Penetrating Radar Systems to locate reinforcing and beams on a bridge off I-64 in Williamsburg, Virginia. The engineer had multiple areas on the bridge that had to be core drilled before soil sampling could take place. GPRS was the second company to be called out due to the first company not being able to locate what was is the slab. The top picture is prior to GPRS being called out to scan for reinforcing. The white lines are what the previous company believed to be in the concrete. The second picture with the orange lines show the reinforcing GPRS detected and note the beam that GPRS marked out as well. The engineering firm was able to successfully drill without the fear of hitting any reinforcing or beams and knew exactly where the reinforcing was before the drilling took place. The depth of the slab was also given to the engineer so they knew how thick the slab was prior to drilling. This job had to be performed in the evening as lanes on the bridge had to be shut down for the work to be performed. GPRS is available 24 hrs. a day to accommodate any work that needs to be performed.
With the proper training GPRS was able to detect the reinforcing and beams prior to drilling. GPRS was able to mark directly on the surface the depth and location of the reinforcing and beams in real time. All of our technicians have completed the OSHA 10 training and are currently involved in an ongoing safety training course. Safety is a priority to us at Ground Penetrating Radar Systems and our thirteen year track record proves it.
GPR is a great tool to locate reinforcing slab depths and beam locations. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Virginia Beach, VA. scans for utilities, conduits, and reinforcing multiple times a week.
