Concrete Scanned with GPR to Locate Reinforcing Steel, and Conduits - Charlotte, NC

On July 3, 2015 Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was requested on site at the Duke Energy Facility in Charlotte, NC to perform a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scan. The purpose of this scan was to determine the location of all reinforcing steel in slab, along with any possible conduits in slab. This was very beneficial for the customer prior to core drilling so they did not strike any reinforcement or possible conduits in the slab. We were also able to mark out the existing beam locations in the slab as well.

We used a GSSI (Geophysical Survey Systems, LLC) Ground Penetrating Radar Unit with one specific antenna. The antenna used on this project was a 1600 MHz antenna. This antenna is beneficial when locating conduits or utilities in or just below the concrete slab.
