Concrete scanning uses ground penetrating radar (GPR) to locate objects. GPR is a mechanical and geophysical device that uses radar pulses to create a subsurface image. It is non-invasive, non-destructive, and typically takes very little time. All types of construction projects use GPR to locate numerous subsurface objects to ensure safety and integrity in the construction process. Concrete Scanning with Ground Penetrating Radar. With new build construction and renovation projects, the likelihood of needing to cut or core a concrete slab is high. There is inherent risk of striking rebar, electrical and communications conduits, and post tension cables during cutting, coring or drilling process.

Through their extensive training and experience, GPRS technicians have the ability to locate voids - air gaps between the sub-grade, dirt and the concrete slab-on- grade - hidden below concrete or asphalt surfaces. This degradation occurs over time due to compaction, pipe ruptures or erosion but is often undetectable on the surface. GPRS ground penetrating radar technology can help our clients locate these areas and – most important - avoid collapses.



Establish Location and Depth of Post-Tension Cables in Concrete with GPR. StructureScan helps concrete professionals and contractors find the location and depth of post-tension cables. Let StructureScan identify the characteristics of the survey area, such as where the cables drape, for added safety.



Concrete and construction professionals use ground penetrating radar to safely locate structures within poured concrete prior to drilling, cutting or coring. Take advantage of locating targets in real time, with only single-sided access required.



When core drilling or saw cutting in commercial and industrial locations, accurate detection of electrical conduits is essential for preventing safety risks, power outages and costly damages. GPRS provides two specific but different scanning services in this area: Elevated concrete slab scanning and concrete slab-on-grade locating. Elevated concrete slab scanning involves detecting embedded electrical conduits prior to core drilling a hole through the slab.


Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Concrete Scanning?

Concrete scanning is a non-destructive concrete assessment technology which is used to detect material or voids within a concrete slab. This could include concrete-specific ground penetrating radar (GPR), a cover meter, an ultrasonic scanning equipment..Read More

2. Why concrete scanning is used?

It is used because huge range of construction projects – particularly renovations – may involve the cutting or coring of a concrete slab for a real variety of reasons. When carrying out this type of work, it’s vital that those involved are aware of anything beneath the service that may pose a risk to them, other people or the structure..Read More

3. How does concrete scanning works?

Concrete is scanned with the use of ground penetrating radar. A device is passed over the concrete’s exposed surface, sending a signal into the concrete. The signal is deflected back to the device in different patterns depending on what type of material is found in the concrete and how deep the material is..Read More
