Best practices for operating in GPR scanned concrete slabs
CSDA has released a new best practice to help concrete cutters, architects, engineers, general contractors, government officials, and virtually anyone involved with the specifying of concrete cutting, polishing, ground penetrating radar (GPR) imaging and selective demolition work.
The new best practice, CSDA-BP-026 Operating in GPR Scanned Slabs, was developed with input from GPR contractors, manufacturers, concrete cutting contractors and specifiers.
The document provides an overview and methodology for core drilling, sawing or hand breaking in concrete when GPR scanning has been utilized as it applies to the sawing, drilling and selective demolition industry. It covers practical applications, limitations and liability issues.
This new best practice can be found in the, along with over 40 other Standards, Specifications, Best Practices, Tolerances and White Papers. Each one has been written, reviewed and approved by experts in the field and all are subject to regular updates by the association's Standards & Specifications Committee.
