GPRS Enterprises Inc. of British Columbia was contacting by a local home renovation company in order to locate footings and grade beams in key locations of a residence prior to adding additional column support. Size, location, and thickness of these footings were needed criteria in being able to determine the load that could be added to support the upper floor. Each footing was clearly identified, as the 4” thick slab dropped to 12” or thicker in each grade beam/footing area. The dimensions were documented, and marked on site after the findings were presented to the site engineer and the project manager.
The project manager had considered jackhammering each location to destructively test the footings, which would have taken days and needless extra manpower. We were able to locate these features in 10-15 minutes per location, and at a substantial discount to the client considering other options for testing. GPRS can be on site within 24 hours of a request in order to keep these important concrete analyses projects running smoothly.
If your company is in need of plastic or steel conduit location, rebar locating, post tension cable locating, footing/grade beam analyses or concrete void detection in the Lower Mainland or greater Vancouver area, please contact:
