Scan concrete to identify obstructions before core drilling
Penhall responded to a customer’s request to perform concrete scanning to identify any obstructions at a site in Hillsboro, OR. We scanned an area of 2″ x 7 1/2″ before it was safe to perform core drilling for the installation of FPS. We were able to locate and avoid the rebar and post tension cable when we finally drilled.
Locate embedded objects within the concrete slab
For this project Penhall scanned for embedded objects within a concrete slab. 2.5″ X 12″ holes were going to be drilled in 7 different areas at a West Linn, OR job site. The purpose of the holes was for water tank footing.
Ground penetrating radar used to scan concrete slab with metal decking
Prior to flat sawing, Penhall performed scanning for a Portland, OR location for obstructions. We used ground penetrating radar to scan an area that measured 2’ x 2’ on a 7” thick concrete slab. The concrete slab sat over metal decking.
Bridge scan to locate post tension cable before installing a sign
Penhall recently aided in a customer’s sign installation. We located post-tension cables and rebar on a 10’ x 15’ section of a bridge. The bridge was located in Vancouver, WA.
