GPR Project in Titusville, FL
When needing to know what lies beneath the surface of concrete many contractors in the central Florida area and Orlando know to call GPRS, Inc. One of those contractors was planning to install new support beams within a large concrete structure. They needed multiple surface areas surveyed adding up to roughly 720 square feet that was located forty feet high. The area was only accessible via scissor lift. They reached out to Ground Penetrating Radar Systems to x-ray the concrete to locate rebar, post tension cables and all unknown reinforcing steel.
GPRS worked together with the contractor and decided to use a specialty GSSI built scanner that is specifically designed to scan large concrete surface areas located in high places. The scope of the project lasted two full days of working on the lift. Once the scanning was complete the GPR technician marked out the surface area with permanent markers and explained the results so the engineer would know how to layout the anchors to support the weight of the beams. The beams were successfully installed in the concrete structure.
You will see a picture below depicting Nate Schmoe, of GPRS, Inc. scanning the concrete surface area on the scissor lift.
