GPR Scanning for Concrete Reinforcement at A Mall Parking Garage - Edmonton, Alberta

An engineering firm was planning to perform structural analysis prior to construction of a Tesla Charging Station at a Mall’s Parking garage. GPRS Enterprises of Edmonton was selected to provide Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scans to obtain information on the slab and reinforcing steel within the structure.

GPR Concrete Scanning for Reinforcement - Edmonton, Alberta

GPRS provided the client with dimensions of slab, beams, girders, and columns. This includes the thickness of the slab and width/depth/span of supporting beams and girders below proposed area level. We also provided rebar spacing and locations within slab and supporting beams/girders as well as rebar size within the slab. There was a topping slab with strong reflective liner at the bottom which prevent the GPR signals penetrating through. Thus we had to perform all the scanning from underneath of the slab. The sketch below shows the reinforcement steel placement within the area of interest which greatly varied throughout the area. The client was then able to then take the information and incorporate it into their design. Any existing conduit with live power was also located with Radio detection equipment (RD). The spacing and locations of rebar within the slab will be critical for the client as well in term of determining where to anchor the stations.
