Concrete Scan with GPR Prior to Drilling - Toronto, Ontario

GPRS Enterprises Inc. has provided concrete scanning for several large general contractors at various projects in the Ontario, area. One of our recent projects was completed at a new high rise building where GPRS Project Manager Adrian Atkins scanned several concrete slabs so that a contractor could safely core drill in several locations. GPRS was able to locate structural steel such as rebar and live power conduits and other targets within these concrete slabs. This project was located at a large condo building and had several electrical cables embedded within the floors. Our equipment was able to penetrate through these 8” concrete slabs easily. We also used a special compacted antenna (Palm Antenna) to get into some of the tight areas of the project. GPRS completed this project in a safe, time efficient, non-destructive way, which helped the client stay safe and on schedule. Once the scanning was completed, GPRS Project Manager Adrian Atkins walked through the scanned areas with the contractor to explain the results of the scan and to provide recommendations on where it was safe or not safe to core drill.

The photo above represents one of the core drilling locations, located in the parking garage. All structural steel, conduits or any obstructions were mapped out directly on the surface. The photo above shows our GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) 2000 MHz antenna equipment. All structural steel, conduits or any obstructions were mapped out directly on the surface so that the toilet drain could be relocated.

For this project, it was important to locate and map out all structural steel and conduits or other obstructions within the suspended concrete slab prior to core drilling. For this project, we used both our 1600 MHz GPR and 2000 MHz GPR (Palm antenna) which is designed for getting us close to walls, columns or hard to reach areas which in this project is exactly what we needed to do, identifying several obstructions we gave the contractor other clear areas to complete his cores and continue his project in a safe and cost efficient way.

GPRS Enterprises Inc. provides our clients with digital concrete imaging using Ground Penetrating Radar as well as radio detection technologies to assist our clients in locating all critical targets within concrete slabs quickly and accurately. GPRS Enterprises has large network of experienced technicians throughout Canada and the United States with specialization of concrete imaging and concrete inspection. We also provide a number of other services including private utility locating. We are able to locate PVC pipes, fiber optic cables, storage tanks, hydro lines, and many other types of subsurface elements. We also provide EM geophysical surveys in Hamilton, Toronto, London and surrounding areas.
