Using GPR allows for a comprehensive coverage of a site and, as a standalone service, a GPR Survey can be used to target these specific features.
The method for this is to scan the entire site in a grid pattern, recording the images, and then post processing the information using specialist software. A full report or an annotated site plan will then be drawn up to the client’s specification detailing the findings on the target features.
GPR Surveys can be used to investigate an array of buried features, including but not limited to the following:
- Buried Structures (Building Foundations, Footprints)
- Underground Fuel/Utility Tanks
- Concrete Reinforcing Bars (Rebar)
- Non Metallic Utilities (Plastic/Fibre Optic Services)
- Pile Caps
Intersect Surveys offer comprehensive scanning of concrete structures including:
- Mapping of reinforcing bars
- Determining concrete slab thickness
- Locating and mapping of conduits and pipework
- Detection of voids and other structural anomalies
- The benefits of using GPR over alternative methods are that using GPR is completely non-intrusive/destructive and will usually only require access to one side of the structure being investigated.
Chimney Flue Location
GPR can be used to locate and map out positions of chimney flues. This is achievable without the need for destructive or intrusive works and as such causes minimal disruption to the everyday workings of the structure.
The positions of the flues can be marked out on site, or they can be presented in CAD format.
