GPR Interior Concrete Scan

Client Problem

Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local general contractor needing to identify the location of all utilities within the concrete slab, within the kitchen and dining areas of the Chick-fil-a restaurant. Several of the existing utilities needed to be found so they could be relocated, additionally our client needed to locate any possible conflict locations for the relocation of the utilities.

How We Responded

A Technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections Texas office and arrived on the construction site in San Antonio, Texas to meet the schedule the contractor had requested.  Encompass Inspections set out to identify and mark out all of the existing sub surface utilities, and identify possible targets within the concrete slab throughout the designated work area.

Results We Delivered

Encompass Inspections set out to locate the utilities and concrete reinforcements within the concretes floor using Ground Penetrating Radar.  Upon completing the GPR scanning, the results were marked in paint directly onto the surface allowing the onsite contact to perform their utility relocation without damaging any of the existing utilities.

Client Savings

Using both GPR concrete imaging and underground pipe locator technologies simultaneously, it greatly reduced the project costs by allowing the project to be marked out accurately and efficiently.  Providing a precise guide for saw cuts and digging, which helps prevent accidental damage to existing utilities, such accidents can be expensive to repair. We help our clients complete their projects in a safer and more efficient manner.
