GPRS scans for conduits or shallow utilities prior to saw cutting at the Expo Center - Columbus, Ohio
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was recently called by a local contractor to scan an existing space that was being renovated in Columbus, Ohio. The contractor needed to saw cut the concrete slab in multiple areas replace the existing slab after signs of aging. The space was currently in use at the time of the scanning, and the contractor wanted to avoid interrupting operation of the facility by cutting a conduit. Striking a conduit or shallow utility when saw cutting can be expensive to repair and dangerous for the contractors on site. GPRS was called to mark out any conduits or shallow utilities so the contractors could saw cut the slab without damaging any existing utilities. GPRS located several conduits or shallow utilities within the saw cutting areas. Some of these conduits were very shallow and could have been struck during saw cutting if they were not identified. GPRS was able to get to the job in a timely matter so the project could remain on schedule. Ground penetrating radar is an accurate and effective way of locating conduits, rebar, and post tension cables in a concrete slab.
