Contaminated Slab Survey

October , 2010

Global was hired to measure and weigh sections of contaminated concrete from a broken up slab to be loaded into containers and transported by barge. Due to the remote location, it was not possible to have specific equipment available. To ensure the available crane’s maximum capacity was not exceeded, care was required to stay within the weight restrictions. 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 dimensional measurements.
Once the dimensional weight formula was determined, an onsite Global field technician measured and estimated the weight for each piece. All containers came in under the weight and were picked up by the barge company without issue.
