Concrete Scanning - Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Southern Geophysical has been scanning concrete floors, walls, ceiling, columns, beams, footings, roofs, and other structures with radar since 2004. We have the depth and experience for all jobs.
Building owners and engineers trust Southern Geophysical to locate subsurface infrastructure prior to cutting or coring in concrete. We minimize cost, reduce hazards and allow structural concerns to be addressed.
Southern Geophysical owns a range of radar systems to tackle all sites and conditions. Where needed, Southern Geophysical combines technologies and disciplines, beyond basic concrete scanning.
- Slab thickness estimates, both for suspended slabs and slab-on-grade
- Rebar pattern location and mapping services
- Detection of post-tension cables
- Locating metallic and non-metallic pipes and conduits
- Detecting voids and concrete problems
- Locating pipes and cables including those buried within/under slab-on-grade concrete pads
- Reporting quantitative data for engineering applications
