Ground Penetrating Radar to Identify Post Tension Cables

Post Tension GPR Locate at apartment complex – Los Angeles, CA

Client Problem

A contractor wanted to scan for post-tension cables and other underground utilities below the concrete on the pool deck and patio area. The contractor needed to drill 5 cores for drains and gas pipes going from the ground level to the garage parking below the pool deck.

How We Responded

Ground penetrating radar technology was used to scan the post-tension concrete deck,  GPR verified the depth and the location of each post tension cable.  We also used a RD 8000 to locate underground utilities on site.

Results We Delivered

We were able to deliver exceptional results with our GPR system to the client.  Post tension cables were located within the concrete, and marked out the cables in pink paint so the coring drilling could be completed without damaging the apartment building.

Client Savings

The contractor saved money and time by avoiding the cost of repairing any post tension cable damage to the concrete on the pool deck area and also avoiding any serious damage if they were to core drill through any electrical conduits below the ground level.
