Concrete Scanning Services

Client Problem

Encompass Inspections was contracted by a security installation company needing a concrete slab scanned to avoid utility lines. GPR concrete scanning would allow the contractor a safe project layout for the installation of new personal security screening equipment at the airport . The contractor hired Encompass Inspections for ground penetrating radar scanning and utility locating services to ensure the safe installation of anchors to secure the equipment into the floor without damage.

How We Responded

Encompass Inspections arrived on time to the airport site, and met the project manager to review the scope of work and security policies.  Once the site layout was complete, the GPR utility scanning technician was able to locate and identify utility lines in conflict with the proposed anchor layout.

Results We Delivered

GPR concrete scanning located two in slab conduits 2-1/2″ deep in conflict with anchor layout. The ground penetrating radar survey also located wire mesh reinforcing in the slab.  The technician then located exterior utility lines that were approximately 4-5 inches beneath the concrete slab.  The concrete imaging technician marked the interior utility line locations using blue painters tape, so no permanent marks were left on the airport floor. For the exterior utility locate, the located underground water lines were marked in the standard blue paint.

With its nationwide reach, Encompass Inspections was able to complete the utility locate for the contractor even in the remote location of Nome, Alaska.  We pride ourselves as being solution providers to our clients, with the available staff to keep our contractors within budget on even the most remote project locations across the U.S.
