Ground Penetrating Radar Concrete Imaging

Client Problem

Encompass Inspections was contacted by a local gas facility site manager needing to identify rebar and other anomalies within the concrete slab prior to saw cutting concrete for a construction project in one of their warehouses.

How We Responded

A locate technician was dispatched from Encompass Inspections NorCal office and arrived on the jobsite in Richmond, California within 24 hours of the project request.  Once a project walk was completed with the site manager to understand the entire scope of work, Encompass Inspections set out to inspect and mark out all of the existing subsurface reinforcements.

Results We Delivered

The concrete scan revealed the rebar reinforcement within the concrete slab and also subsurface utilities within the proposed saw cut path and excavation area.  The concrete imaging and sub surface locate was performed by utilizing Ground Penetrating Radar.  Upon completing the GPR scanning, the results were marked directly onto the surface allowing the site manager to perform their saw cutting and excavation safely and without any damage to the structure or job site personnel.
