GPR Scanning for Conduits/Private Underground Utilities
A metal fabrication shop in Abilene, TX was scheduled to install an additional rotating table, which would be anchored to the ground below the concrete slab. This installation process would require the contractor to saw cut the slab and drill roughly three feet down to secure the anchors. This area was thought to contain a sanitary sewer and possible conduits running through or below the slab. Prior to excavation, David Hagenmayer with Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC., was called out to scan the proposed locations and mark out all underground utilities and obstructions in the area. David was able to determine the precise locations and depths of the utilities. The client was then able to remove the section of concrete and install the anchors safely and without hitting any obstructions.
