PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

In June, Penhall Company was asked to scan the slab of a multi-use building under construction, which would eventually house retail shops and luxury apartments. Our Charlotte, NC team sent out Regional Field Supervisor, Patrick Baldwin of Penhall Technologies to perform the work. The scans were intended to learn more about the structure of the building, identify the locations of post tension cables and make sure the areas indicated for plumbing holes were clear of obstacles.

Our customer, general contractor, Bliss Contracting, asked Penhall to scan the slab before our teams came in to perform the cutting. Penhall discovered that the original plans asked for the plumbing holes to be cut directly over slab bands and post tension cables. This project is just one of many examples as to why concrete scanning, digital x-ray imaging, and private utility locating are so critical to the success and schedule of a project.

  • The GPR scan revealed that the original plans asked for the plumbing holes to be cut directly over slab bands and post tension cables.
  • GPR Scanning and Digital X-ray Imaging were options for this project
  • Penhall Company followed the scanning with the cutting of six cores for plumbing

“Penhall Company knows concrete. Having a division that specializes in concrete scanning is immensely complimentary (if not necessary!) when cutting will follow. Our Regional Field Supervisors, like Patrick Baldwin, have years of experience, which allows our clients to have peace of mind that their project will be completed successfully.”
