Ground Penetration Radar
Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local commercial contractor needing to drill and anchor down generators in a safe and effective manner .
How We Responded
A Technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections California office and arrived on the jobsite in Northridge, California. Once a jobsite walk was completed with the project manager, Encompass Inspections set out to identify and mark out all of the existing utilities and ground enforcement located within the concrete. This included rebar, post tension and existing utilities.
Results We Delivered
The underground locator revealed rebar and reinforcement within the proposed excavation area by utilizing RD7000 Utility Locator and Ground Penetrating Radar. Upon completing the Ground Penetration Radar, the results were marked directly onto the surface allowing the contractors to perform their coring safely and without any damage to the structure or job site personnel.
Our locators saved the contractor at the college from possibly drilling throough expensive post-tension cables or other structural elements such as rebar or grade beams. Also effectively missing any underground utilities that might be serving the college.
