EGSci has conducted multiple projects at Georgia Tech including monitoring construction vibrations in the university’s Nanotechnology Building which contains highly sensitive lab equipment, rebar mapping in a duct bank using non-destructive testing, and performing geotechnical and geophysical investigations to provide tower foundation and antenna support recommendations for the local radio station.
EGSci performed non-destructive testing consisting of the sonic echo / impulse response methods, in order to determine the approximate length of select piles and to detect any possible adverse conditions that may exist within the piles.
EGSci conducted an investigation to help address safety concerns associated with the existing wood light poles surrounding the baseball fields at the school.
During the rerouting of a sewer line on campus, shallow bedrock was encountered several feet from an existing building that required blasting to remove. EGSci performed vibration monitoring at the adjacent building to detect and monitor vibrations that could potentially cause damage to the building.
EGSci used ground penetrating radar and pulse induction methods to map the rebar in columns and beams at the Stephens County High School for a renovation project. The rebar information was used to avoid hitting reinforcement steel while the contractor drilled into the concrete.
EGSci performed a Multi-channel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) seismic investigation at a proposed in construction on the campus of this elementary school. The results of the MASW investigation were used to determine the IBC site seismic classification for the site to aid in the design parameters of the new construction.
