WHAT IS GROUND PENETRATING RADAR?

ARI is frequently contracted to perform site investigation using GPR prior to core drilling, giving contractors and property owners an accurate assessment of any possible subsurface surprises. Using the best available GPR technology, we save our clients time and money and provide peace of mind. Why risk construction delays and expensive repairs to your infrastructure?

Ground penetrating radar is the best nondestructive tool available to provide real-time imaging of concrete structures, accurately identify structural steel systems on both elevated and slab on grade, and identify unobstructed areas prior to coring or cutting. GPR also provides QA/QC services, insuring concrete thickness, grout and rebar presence and placement. We also use GPR to locate both traceable and non traceable utility s ervices. ARI helps protect your infrastructure and investment in a safe and timely manner, and we are never happy until our clients are 100% satisfied with our services!

OUR COMMON GPR APPLICATIONS

CONCRETE SCANNING

  • Provide safe areas to core drill, avoiding structural reinforcement, conduits, and radiant heating systems and under slab beams
  • Locate and map rebar, pre and post tension cable systems in both vertical and horizontal concrete
  • Locate safe areas to anchor mechanical and seismic sensors
  • Identify utilities beneath a slab on grade prior to trenching
  • Accurately determine slab thickness, both elevated and slab on grade
  • Inspect CMU block walls to determine the presence of grout and rebar and verify proper structural detail pattern
  • Locate and identify voids within and beneath concrete slabs, floors, columns, and beams.
  • Accurately determine material coverage thickness over structural reinforcement systems
