Erosion Control & Watershed Design
Buildsafe is the first company to commercialise ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology in Nigeria. GPR is a real time non-destructive (NDT) technique suitable for detection of buried objects. It uses radio waves to penetrate the surface below ground , concrete walls and floors. It can detect both metallic and non-metallic materials. GPR helps to save cost by avoiding unnecessary damage to existing services. It prevents accidents and also saves time. WIth GPR we do comprehensive utility mapping. It is now possible to reproduce the structural drawings of an existing building using GPR technology. Buildsafe will give you the finest details such as size and spacing of reinforcement, cover to concrete, thickness of slab and extent of corrossion of Reinforcement in concrete. We detect voids underground without excavation. GPR business is extensive and requires huge investment. With our belief in professionalism, we formed a strategic alliance with GeoStudi Astir, Italy to have
extensive coverage of GPR and Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ETR). This makes us a force to be reckoned with in terms of GPR and sub-surface investigation.
