Read on to learn more about what we can offer you and then reach out to us at 866-997-2327 to begin the process.
How do plans get lost?
This is often a problem on older buildings. As time has gone, the plans, which are sometimes known as “as-builts,” end up getting misplaced. They may have been in an old filing cabinet that got thrown away, they may have been in the desk of a former employee who emptied each drawer without looking closely. It could be that someone found them and didn’t realize how important they were. Regardless, it is all too each for plans to get lost or thrown away.
Let us be the eyes that can see within your building
You do not have to rip up the building to see what is happening inside. Instead, let us do it for you. If you have an engineer who needs to know how the building in question was constructed, or if you have an architect who needs to know if the building is structurally sound and how it was built, then we can help you.
We can complete a building study that gives you all the information you need
When you choose to work with Subsurface Imaging, we can complete a building study. We can do this using both x-ray and ground penetrating radar. We complete these tests on a predetermined sample area of the building. This will give us a wealth of information about the building such as:
- Rebar size
- Rebar shape (such as round, square, etc. – this can help to determine how old the building is too)
When an engineer and / or architect has access to this information, they can easily analyze it and calculate exactly what they are dealing with.
