Concrete scanning - Western Australia
Services for Bunnings
Security measures were being increased to Bunnings warehouse stores with concrete scanning required prior to the installation of Steel bollards in front of Bunnings' entry and exit trade doors across various Bunnings Warehouse Western Australia store locations.
The advantage of concrete scanning provided by Westscan using high-resolution ground-penetrating radar with 3D images meant the drill hole locations could be concrete scanned for utility services imbedded in the concrete slab or beneath the concrete driveway. The GPR radar scanning also revealed square steel tongues at even spacing’s. Identifying these steel tongues greatly assisted the project by allowing slight repositioning of the bollards so as to miss the steel tongues. Identifying any potential hazard i.e. services or anomalies is essential before drilling or excavating.
