GPRS, LLC. Scans Concrete Slab Prior to Renovations at Hotel
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was dispatched to a local hotel in Jacksonville, Florida to scan a 10 inch slab filled with rebar, post-tension cables and conduit prior to core drilling. The contractor was remodeling and installing a new kitchen and needed to install floor drains, floor sinks and many utilities that all required separate core drilling locations in the slab. GPRS scanned approximately 40 locations and mapped out all of the obstructions prior to drilling. The technicians used a 1600 MHz ground penetrating radar antenna (safer and quicker that X-ray) to map out the obstructions. The GPR scan helped the contractor to avoid injuring any of their workers by having the post tension and live conduit mapped out. In the image below you can see GPRS technician Adam Yunker scanning with the 1600 MHz antenna. If you would like similar work performed, please visit the “Contact us” page.
