Ground Penetrating Radar is an effective technology used in geological surveys, environmental studies, construction and re-construction projects. Operated through the deployment of electromagnetic waves into the ground, these waves are reflected by subsurface structures or utilities and detected. GPR is used to locate underground storage tanks, buried manholes, concrete structures, septic tanks, water and sewer lines and unmarked gravesites. Ground Penetrating Radar is broadly used for the safe, less destructive detection of buried known or unknown utility lines. Ground Penetrating Radar scans are effective at finding PVC, plastic and concrete pipes. The data generated by Ground Penetrating Radar is critical information needed to get your project moving and avoid incidents causing work stoppage.
Another common use of Ground Penetrating Radar is concrete scanning. Consulting Services Inc. is prepared to deploy a specialist with a small handheld control unit that is able to function accurately even in tight, close quarters. Ground Penetrating Radar is able to detect hazards within a concrete slab that is up to 16” thick. GPR has become a dependable tool for assuring that concrete coring goes smoothly. Ground Penetrating Radar is used to determine concrete slab thickness, concrete density and presence of voids. Embedded hazards in concrete such as rebar, PVC pipes and electrical conduit are also identified accurately through the use of Ground Penetrating Radar.
Through the years, Consulting Services Inc. has demonstrated to our clients that the most valuable tool we have is our experienced team members. While performing surveying accurately is critical, the detailed data interpretation which we report to our clients is vitally important. We pride ourselves on strong communication skills that assure that the interpretation of data is understood and incorporated into the scope of the project. Skill at interpreting the results of Ground Penetrating Radar is acquired over time – and you will benefit from our long-term experience providing GPR services.
