Ground Penetrating Radar Services
Encompass inspections was contacted by local commercial contractor needing concrete scanning for an interior school renovation project. The contractor needed to locate and mark out all utility lines in the proposed area in order to repair a collapsed sewer pipe.
How We Responded
A technician was dispatch from Encompass Inspections, and arrived on the job site in Redford, Michigan to meet the project schedule demands. Once a jobsite walk was completed with contractor, the locate technician set out to pinpoint and mark out all the existing utilities in proposed excavation area, both in the concrete floor slab and the sub floor underground area of the school’s hallway.
Results We Delivered
The underground locator successfully located utilities in the proposed excavation area. By utilizing a RD7000 utility locator along with ground penetrating radar, allowed the technician several methods in order to ensure all utilities were located correctly. Upon completion all targets were mark directly onto the surface, allowing the contractor to perform their excavation for the new sewer work safely, while avoiding costly damages to the facility.
