Concrete Scanning for Water Tower
Encompass Inspections was contacted by a cell tower communications company needing several locations a water tower scanned for any steel reinforcements and utilities. The contractor was installing 3 antennas near groupings of existing antenna and needed clear spots for drilling anchors into the side of the concrete water tower.
How We Responded
A Technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections Texas office and arrived on the project in Keller, Texas within 24 hours of the project request. After project safety walk was completed with the installation contractor, Encompass Inspections proceeded to mark out all of the existing rebar, and possible targets within the designated area.
Results We Delivered
Encompass Inspections identified the concrete rebar reinforcement in the side of the water tower using Ground Penetrating Radar. Upon completing the GPR scans, the results were marked in red keel directly onto the surface allowing the contactor to perform their final analysis before conducting their anchor drillings. Our markings provide a quick, safe, and easy to read guide for the drillers.
The flexibility of GPR allowed the technician to safely mark out the rebar while confined to a scissor lift. The GPR scan results provided an accurate guide for the client to make precise drills to anchor the antenna with reduced risk of hitting any reinforcement or utilities. As striking reinforcement would be costly to repair, our markings provide a clear and easy to read guide for even the most novice of workers. We help our clients complete their projects safely and in the most efficient manner.
