Rebar and Conduit Scan Prior To Installation of Plumbing Lines

Recently, one of our clients needed to core several new plumbing lines through an existing concrete slab. However, they were unaware if there was an electrical conduit running through the slab. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) came to the site to scan the concrete, map out the rebar, conduits/unknowns on the surface in real time and provide this information to our client the plumbing contractor so they could continue to lay the plumbing for the new facilities.

GPRS of Chicago, Illinois was able to scan the concrete to locate and map conduits and rebar and mark them directly on the surface. They will be able to proceed with any coring that they had planned. GPRS can help keep projects on schedule and lower costs by letting the clients know where problem areas may be. Concrete scanning for conduit, rebar, post tension cables, and radiant heats tubes are common applications for GPRS project managers. If you have any questions regarding the use of Ground Penetrating Radar for concrete scanning or underground imaging on your job site in Illinois or Northwest Indiana, please contact John Lause at (312) 485-7725 or
