Parkview Hotel Concrete Slab
Thickness and Rebar Locating

Wisconsin concrete x-raysThe historic Parkview Hotel on the north side of Chicago has been undergoing a major renovation. As part of this remodeling, new mechanical equipment and shelving was installed on the penthouse level. Terra Consulting Group wanted to be sure that the concrete floor had strong enough steel reinforcing to support the new equipment. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was brought in to perform a concrete analysis of this floor, to provide data for the slab thickness rebar spacing, rebar depth, and an estimate of the rebar size. GPRS was able to scan a large section of the floor and provide the results of the concrete analysis immediately.
