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 CSDA Resource Guide, 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.

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.
When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
