Reno Concrete Scanning Projects that Penhall Worked On

Find reinforcing steel before starting repairs

Sometimes, we travel to remote locations. For this job, we traveled to Truckee, CA to perform concrete scanning. The altitude of the Sierra Mountains did not present much of a challenge, as so much painted a serene setting upon which to scan in nature. This dam was in need of repair and the contractor wanted to place two drains into the deck. Our analysts identified reinforcing steel in the concrete. They also found exactly where the concrete beams were located under the bridge. This helped the contractor best place his drains successfully.

Penhall Technologies is the “go to” company for all of this contractor’s concrete scanning needs

trusted concrete scanning in reno nevadaA general contractor with a deep understanding of structure scanning trusted Penhall Technologies for their recent project in Carson City, NV. Using the GSSI Mini XT, Penhall’s analyst was able to identify the rebar pattern within a medical office building. When framers and mechanical companies lay out walls and potential holes through the concrete slab, the information given with the GPR Scan allows the general contractor to move forward with great foresight. This helps keep the project moving smoothly and on time. Penhall Technologies has the capability and the trained personnel to meet your needs in a timely manner, ultimately ensuring your projects get finished safely and efficiently.

Ground penetrating radar used to scan for embedded objects in concrete

Ground penetrating radar used to scan for embedded objects in concretePenhall was asked to use ground penetrating radar to examine an area for embedded objects at a site in Reno, NV. The scanning was administered to ensure that it was safe to perform an electrical saw cutting. The cutting was for a concrete trench that measured 6′ x 3″ x 2″.

Rooftop scanning on elevated slab to locate post tension cables and existing conduit

rooftop scanning on elevated slab for tension cables and existing conduitFor a client in Reno, NV, Penhall completed some GPR scanning, where we inspected several locations for obstructions, such as rebar, post tension, conduit, or utilities. All 12 locations were located on an elevated concrete slab that was 6” thick. After scanning, it was safe do perform core drilling.

Identify hazards within concrete before cutting and resurfacing

Identifying conduit and post tension cable with GPR concrete scanningOver 60% of a slab was inspected using ground penetrating radar to locate conduits and post-tension cables for a client in Reno, NV. The identification of these hazards was necessary prior to the concrete cutting and resurfacing of the parking structure.

Concrete scanning used to identify patterns of tension cables and rebar

ground penetrating radar used to locate tension cables and rebarFor this project, Penhall completed a concrete scanning job in Sparks, NV. We used ground penetrating radar to scan an area that measured 2.5′ x2.5′. The client wanted us to identify the existing post tension cables and rebar in the concrete.
