Post Tension Locate - Frisco, TX

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was contacted by a general contractor to locate the post tension cables and conduit running through a parking garage slab of concrete. The GC was concerned of the safety issues with his contractors hitting an electrical cable or a high tension cable. There are thousands of pounds of pressure on each cable and can become an extreme safety hazard if one of the cables is struck. This can also cause extreme damage to the structures themselves or the structures around them. The pictures below demonstrate a very high concentration of post tension cables that the general contractor would have struck when they performed the core drilling work. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems successfully marked all of the findings on the surface preventing what could have been a very big safety issue. GPRS was able to come on site within 24hrs of the requested job making this a convenient and quick locate for the GC so they could move forward with their work.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems used a GSSI 1600 MHz antenna for this application to locate the reinforcement and conduits. All findings were marked directly on the concrete at customers request for easy interpretation. GPR was ideal for this application due to the active work site in the surrounding areas and this specific location was accessible to the general public. GPR emits no radiation and is safe for others to work in the area near the scan location.
