This weeks photograph was taken at a multi-level RC frame structure we have been investigating for a client to enable expansion and refurbishment, down in Surrey. The project included a number of different NDT techniques (including concrete scanning both with GPR and EM scanners) as well as drilling with boroscopic inspection and concrete coring (for which full PPE was worn - obviously!). If you have a project that requires some additional information to get it moving again,

There has been a SCOSS Alert this month on RAAC (Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) planks that were very common in 1960's - 1980's construction for the creation of flat roof areas. https://www.structural-safety.org/media/667411/scoss-alert-failure-of-raac-planks.pdf This is an incredibly important topic for Architects, Structural Engineers, Contractors and Building Owners involved with structures and buildings constructed in this era.

Our weekly pic of the week! This time it's a birds eye view of a small intrusive breakout - a neat job being done and note the bar position scanned out with cover marked out so we know exactly how far to go so the bar stays undamaged.

If you have a project that requires information to get it moving forward, then get in touch via the contact form or contact page - firstname.lastname@example.org
Our weekly "Bi-TAS Pic of the week" feature this week shows our very own Gavin working at high level to take concrete samples for HAC testing from a recent project. If you have a project that requires investigation, drop us a line!
