Wall Scanning Using Ground Penetrating Radar - Calgary, Alberta

Concrete Wall Scanned with GPR in Calgary, Alberta, CanadaDuring a renovation project for a building in Calgary, Alberta, a local general contractor planned to drill up to 6 holes in a small area on a wall to run pipes through and install a big panel in this area. Therefore, it was absolutely essential to locate all structural steel, and power conduit before any core drilling would take place to prevent the project from costly repairs and maintain jobsite safety.

GPRS Enterprises Inc. in Calgary was contacted for the job. A technician was able to arrive to the job site later in the same day to conduct the survey. We provided the client with digital concrete imaging using Ground Penetrating Radar as well as Radio Detection technologies to assist in locating all critical targets within the slab quickly and accurately. We also used simple marking so that no one can misunderstand or miss any rebar. For example, in this project, single lines were the top rebar and double lines were the bottom bars. It was not hard to pick a location to core but multiple rebar layers would have been hit if the rebar were not located as they lined up right on top of each other. We also walked through any findings with the client after every job to make sure all the results were understood. This gave greater safety and confidence that all core drilling would go as expected without hitting any objects or compromising with the structural integrity of the building.

GPRS Enterprises Inc. is a national company and have done a number of project such as this. We are well known with experienced people as well as nationwide network of technicians with specialization of concrete imaging and concrete inspection.
