SCANNING FOR REBAR, EAGLE HOUSE, LONDON UK
How we helped to find rebar in 18,000 square meters of concrete
Eagle House is a massive residential project in downtown London, including 276 residential units, more than 6,000 square meters of commercial space, a square and more than 30 parking lots – more than 18,000 square meters in total.
The challenge for the developers, Mount Anvil, was to find all the tendons in the concrete floor slabs, soffits and ceilings.
OUR HILTI SOLUTION
The surveyor, Murphy Surveys chose our Hilti PS 1000 X-Scan Detection system for the job. They needed to find rebar, rebar mesh, tendons, pipes, electric wires and other objects hidden in the concrete and structure.
Our Hilti PS 1000 X-Scan Detection system is a pulse radar scanner, which allows you to see objects inside the structure without having to chisel concrete. It also displays real time results in 2D easy-to-read images, on a color screen as you scan.
This meant that the surveyors were able to mark up the building as they scanned.
The surveyors then used our Hilti PROFIS Detection software to analyze the data in more detail back in the office, to create 3D models of the as-built structure, and draw up reports.
All of this helped to save project time, costs and effort by using a non-destructive method of testing the integrity of Eagle House before any drilling or further work.
