GPR Concrete Imaging
The Polo Towers is undergoing major renovations to their pool area. The engineers and
contractors needed to install trench drains to prevent standing water for the new renovations. They are needing to core drill into the concrete in multiple areas to let the water drain in the current system. The area below the core locations was in the basement level of the parking garage. Encompass Inspections was able to mark out the concrete reinforcement areas with the use of scaffolding as the concrete scanning areas were on 9 foot ceilings.
How We Responded
An Encompass Inspections Technician was dispatched from our Las Vegas office and arrived on the jobsite in Las Vegas, Nevada within 24 hours of the project request. Encompass Inspections set out to identify all the reinforcement in the concrete slabs using Ground Penetrating Radar concrete imaging to visibly locate possible reinforcements and anomalies to avoid while drilling. Although some of the concrete slabs were quite congested with rebar reinforcement we were still able to work out problems and find clear locations where the contractor was able core drill without damaging the structural integrity of the concrete.
