Columbia Concrete Scanning Projects that Penhall Technologies has Worked On

Scan elevated concrete slab to find post tension cables and conduit

determine obstructions within concrete slab using GPR scanningPenhall Technologies was asked to perform concrete scanning at a location in Columbia. The job consisted of three areas on the 10th floor of a building. Once the analysts arrived on site, the client mentioned that scanning was necessary for his project to avoid hitting any post tension cable or conduit when core drilling. After scanning, the client had the necessary information to proceed with his core drilling job in a safe and accurate manner.

GPR scanning used to locate embedded objects before remodeling

Scan concrete at private residence before remodelingPenhall Technologies was recently hired for a remodeling project. Our GPR Analysts were asked to scan, locate, and mark three areas for any post-tension cable, rebar, or conduit in a concrete wall. The client wanted scanning done before wall sawing a door opening for his renovation. Always choose to scan first to minimize safety and financial costs in your projects.

Ground penetrating radar used throughout a building to find steel reinforcements within concrete slab

scanning concrete for steel reinforcements within slabA Greenville customer hired Penhall Technologies to scan 12 locations on the first and second floor of a building.  This was done prior to core drilling to make certain that it was safe to drill into concrete and that any obstructions were avoided to secure the integrity of the concrete slab.

Use GPR scanning to locate hazards before coring

Penhall Technologies was called out by an electrical company in Columbia, our analyst scanned 200 4×12” areas using a GSSI Mini XT unit for core drilling in a new hotel, on multiple floors. Penhall Technologies was asked to locate rebar and PT cables in coring locations. We scanned a 2’x2’ area around each core location expanding the scan area as needed to confirm our findings. We clearly marked out rebar in black wax crayon and PT cables and subsurface hazards with red. The safe areas for coring were clearly outlined in blue crayon and then clear coated to preserve markings. All locations were accurate and the coring was completed without incident.
