KOREC in the press – scanning the unknown

2 January 2020

Our thanks to CES magazine who have featured KOREC’s latest GeoSLAM ZEB REVO story on their front cover.  Chris Shelley (then of Clugston Survey, now Head of Survey Department/Principal Land & Building Surveyor at CLS Civil Engineering) kindly shared the information and pictures for this story with us which looks at how the real-time functionality of their ZEB REVO handheld scanner enabled them, whilst still on site, to provide their customer with sufficient information for them to initiate a remedial plan before the final deliverable was issued.

The main challenge for engineers dealing with sinkholes is the unknown. Until a thorough investigation has been completed, their depth and size can be disguised by a small surface diameter, or a bottleneck, and the risk of further collapse remains a threat. In this case, the data collected by the handheld scanner lowered into the sinkhole revealed it to be more than 10m deep. By using the real time feed to maintain accuracy and see what the scans were producing below ground, the client had full confidence in the data and was happy to show the client some early visual based results of  what had until then, been a totally unknown factor.
