GPR Used to Locate Reinforcement CO

GPRS of Denver, CO was contacted by a contractor to confirm the existence of reinforcing steel in a concrete foundation in the Emu pen at a local zoo in Colorado Springs, CO. The customer needed to confirm the concrete foundation included reinforcing steel when it was poured. GPRS, Inc. arrived on site to perform digital concrete imaging using ground penetrating radar (GPR) to determine the existence of rebar in the concrete foundation.

GPR was ideal on this site as the slab was over grade because it does not require both sides of the concrete slab unlike traditional x-ray. GPR emits no radiation and is completely safe to be around. All data findings are marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for the easiest interpretation of the scanning provided.

If you are interested in learning more about our concrete imaging capabilities or other GPR applications such as locating utilities, underground storage tanks (USTs), clearing boring locations of possible utilities for soil samples, void detection or even structural investigations. GPRS has an office in Denver, CO serving all of Colorado and Wyoming as well as local offices in Salt Lake City UT, Albuquerque NM, Phoenix AZ, Omaha NE, and Kansas City.
