GPR Scanning for Curb Stop

Client Problem

Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local plumbing contractor who needed to cut into a concrete parking structure to install curb stops.

How We Responded

A Technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections Northern California office and arrived on the field office on campus in San Francisco, CA within 24 hours of the project request.  A pre-locate job walk was conducted with the project foreman to insure an understanding of the desired scope of work.

Results We Delivered

The GPR technician scanned the slab for all reinforcements within the proposed work area by utilizing Ground Penetrating Radar.  Upon completing the concrete imaging scan on the suspended concrete slab, the results were marked directly onto the surface allowing the contractor to perform their scope of work safely and without any damage to the structure or job site personnel.

Client Savings

Striking a utility line or damaging the structural integrity of a concrete slab would have resulted in large repair costs had a accurate utility locate and concrete scan not occurred on this project.  Call Encompass Inspections prior to digging or cutting concrete to avoid costly delays, repairs, and jobsite injuries.
