Contaminated Slab Survey

October , 2010

Global was hired to measure and weigh sections of a contaminated concrete from a broken up slab to be loaded into containers and transported by barge. Precise measurements were necessary not to exceed maximum crane capacity, but it was not possible to have specific equipment available due to the remote location of the project. To ensure the containers would not be overloaded an engineering firm created a formula using the weight of a few sample pieces of slab based on measurements.
Onsite a field tech from Global measured and estimated the weight for each piece. All containers came in under the weight and were picked up by barge company without issue.
