gprs-investigates-underground-storage-tanks-1.png

GPRS was contacted by a engineering firm to investigate for any buried structures or possible underground storage tanks (USTs). After arriving on site, the firm let GPRS know that there had been a truck stop with diesel filling stations at one point dating back all the way to the late 40’s or early 50’s.

There was no clear documentation stating whether the USTs had been removed or abandoned in place, so GPRS did what we do best; create a strategy to provide the best subsurface scanning solution.

GPRS scanned the area with Electromagnetic Induction (EMI) equipment, and we were able to provide conductivity maps that represented the data collected from the scanning process and overlaid on to Google Earth. GPRS also provided a detailed report which included maps of any utilities around the area as well as where the suspect tanks were to be. Data screenshots were saved for the reporting as well.

GPRS-Scans-Pandeck-Slab-in-Shelbyville-Kentucky.jpg

In early January, GPRS was contacted by a general contractor to perform concrete scanning. The contractor was in the process of renovating an apartment complex in Shelbyville, KY. The engineer involved with the project suggested using GPR to determine if reinforcing existed on the second floor breezeways. The breezeway which was scanned was a pan-deck slab. This required scanning in the same direction as the pan-deck. When scanning over the deepest points of the pan-deck, it was determined reinforcing existed within the breezeway. This information was then compiled into a report which included data images, pictures, and findings. The report was submitted to the contractor to present to the engineer. The work was completed using a GSSI (Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc.) Ground Penetrating Radar, 1600 MHz antenna, which was used to locate the reinforcing in the slab.

John Kessinger from the Toledo, Ohio office was recently contacted by an ethanol plant in NE Indiana to locate reinforcing steel on top of 2 grain silo’s. The silo roof slabs were 6 inches thick with heavy amounts of re-steel. The plant was in need of making (3) 3 inch diameter holes on each silo for obtaining better fill level measurements. Once on site the radar testing was done quickly and accurately without any down time. All the rebar was marked directly on the roof slab so that the contractors could come immediately following and drill the holes. The slab was found to have 3 mats of rebar in it and missing all rebar was found to be a nearly impossible task. The information gathered however, allowed the contractors to minimize the rebar strikes when drilling.

More than perhaps any other facilities, hospitals have a significant need to locate electrical conduits prior to any cutting or drilling. In a manufacturing facility or residential complex, cutting an electrical line can be a major inconvenience. In a hospital, cutting an electrical line can be deadly. With oxygen lines and other vital piping running through floors and walls, hospitals need to be certain that drilling a hole will not put any patients in danger.

At Community Hospital in Munster, Indiana, Berglund Construction is overseeing a renovation to the postpartum care unit. This renovation includes re-routing all of the plumbing, which means drilling new holes through the floor. Berglund has brought in Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Gary to scan every proposed hole location to ensure that no electric conduit or other vital piping is cut. More than thirty holes have been drilled in this section, and not even a single piece of rebar has been cut accidentally.

The pictures you see below are from a local attraction in Orlando, FL. The demolition contractor was removing a curb when they unknowingly broke a main feed line for the sprinkler system. This would normally not have been something difficult to remedy. However, they did not know where the shut-off valve was for the system. With this problem hundreds of gallons of water were wasted and the ground will have to be repaired prior to work continuing.

This is not an uncommon issue on job sites today. To cut cost contractors are performing site work, demolition and excavation without having a proper utility locate performed. Most argue that it is a private property and therefore the local “one-call” services will not perform the scan. This, however, is where Ground Penetrating Radar Systems really shines. We work in all conditions providing one of the most comprehensive and accurate utility locates available.

We can ensure you that your project will be safe and more cost effective before you start digging or excavating....
