GPRS Scans for Conduits in Slab at an Apartment Complex

GPRS of Tennessee recently worked with a local construction company to help them locate underground conduits in the slab before core drilling re-occurred. This company called us in a panic, after hitting two conduits within the concrete slab while core drilling holes. They completely stopped work until each location was scanned to identify the conduits to ensure safety to the drillers. GPRS found multiple conduits in the concrete slab which were live and feeding power to light fixtures. We were able to identify the conduits from the rebar, and marked them accordingly.

Fast and accurate, the GPRS scanning method prevented any other delays to the project that would have been caused if they were to strike another conduit in the slab. Scanning and interpretation are in real-time, so project managers can instantly receive results, relay them to their team members and make necessary adjustments on site without causing any delays. GPRS uses non-destructive testing equipment to locate piping, post-tension cables, reinforcement, and conduits within the slab that are otherwise unable to be seen. Using GPRS is a safe, efficient, cost effective way to make sure you can safely drill or saw-cut and not destroy any conduits, rebar, post-tension cables, or other anomalies in concrete.
