Locating Conduit at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino - Phoenix, AZ
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Phoenix, AZ. was contacted by Sundt Construction to locate conduits that lie just below the concrete slab. Part of the job scope for Sundt was to remove the entire concrete slab where they are remodeling a portion of the casino. They are removing the concrete in order to get rid of the old electrical system that was once feeding all of the gaming equipment. It was very critical that they didn’t cut into any existing live electrical that was feeding the rest of the casino. They definitely didn’t want to shut down any gaming equipment while it was still open to the public. The picture below indicates a live electrical conduit that was located by GPRS while on site doing the concrete scanning. The guys cutting the concrete were able to notch this section of concrete that we had marked out to verify that there was a conduit in this location. Somebody could have been seriously injured if they had cut through this live 480V conduit that was just below the slab. GPRS was able to give a depth to the conduit so they didn’t actually cut into it when exposing the conduit.
Ground Penetrating Radar is ideal on a busy construction site as well as a place of occupancy. GPR does not require evacuation of the area as does traditional x-ray concrete imaging. GPR emits no radiation and is completely safe to be around. Traditional x-ray is mostly done after hours; GPR can be done during normal business hours. All data findings are marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for the easiest interpretation of the scanning provided, with GPR there is no wait for developing films as with traditional x-ray. Only one side of the slab is needed for scanning so time and resources are much more ideal for tight schedules of projects. Ground Penetrating Radar is the new way to x-ray!
