Locating PT Cables in Concrete Floors
GPR concrete scanning for slab reinforcement was needed by a local construction company. Encompass Inspections was asked to identify any unknown utilities in addition to the concrete slab imaging.
How We Responded
Encompass Inspections responded by sending a locate technician to project site to conduct a utility locate and ground penetrating radar survey. Encompass attacked the problem by using RD (Radio Detection) on power mode and the GSSI GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) on concrete scan mode. A Radio Detection pipe locator was used on power mode to pick up any live power and low voltage lines. Encompass first used RD to pick up any or all electrical lines in or near the concrete slab, follow by scanning the concrete for any post tension cables or rebar reinforcement located within the concrete slab.
Results We Delivered
Conducting a thorough concrete inspection survey, Encompass Inspections was able to locate numerous PT cables running through the concrete floor. Finding PT cables allow the contractor to perform their sawcutting of the concrete with risk of damages. In addition to providing site markings directly to the concrete slab, a sketch of the findings on site was provided to the customer at their request.
