Relocate more than 100 buck-outs and 100 cores in close proximity to columns, which typically present added difficulties due to their surrounding reinforcement.


Using Ground-Penetrating Radar and scanning out from the column lines, SRI identified all post-tension cables, conduits, j-boxes and other critical items for the customer to avoid.


The customer successfully relocated all of their buck-outs and core locations within SRI’s clearly marked “OK” boxes, enabling the project to continue moving forward safely and efficiently.
