Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Concrete Scanning have different uses and applications, their combination significantly enhances the safety, efficiency, and precision of construction projects. GPR offers a comprehensive view of what lies beneath the surface, while Concrete Scanning provides detailed insights about the condition and quality of concrete structures.
Building underground networks is a risky business and damage prevention is a priority for utility, property owners, service providers and contractors alike. Before digging, GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) non-destructive technology allows it to detect the varying depths of underground utilities. Once inside the premises, during drilling, coring, and sawing operations, we use concrete scanning to locate post tension cables, rebars and conduits within structural elements to prevent damage.
By utilizing both methods together, we achieve a higher level of accuracy in detecting hidden objects, evaluating structural integrity, and mapping the subsurface. Combining these technologies gives us a thorough set of data, enabling well-informed decision making and accurate planning. This prevents costly mistakes, minimizes construction delays, and ensures safer, more efficient operations on the construction site.
