We use state-of-the-art concrete scanning equipment to quickly scan and inspect
Our non-invasive Ground Penetrating Radar technology can find steel reinforcement, post-tension cables, live power, conduit and many other items. This allows our clients to cut into concrete surfaces with confidence, knowing that any hidden items have been
Our team provide concrete cutting and core drilling services to assist our clients.
It makes sense to use our precision cutting and core drilling service knowing that
we are aware of the potential hazards hidden within concrete. Our experienced
operators perform any cutting in a safe and responsible manner to ensure your
project stays on schedule and on budget.
South East Scanning was established to meet the needs of a variety of industries on the Gold Coast that required concrete scanning services at a highly professional level.
We perform our scanning work with the utmost care and attention to detail, combined with quick reporting and reliable service.
Our service was created to assist a variety of industries including Builders, Plumbers, Concreters, Carpenters, and Structural Engineers.
South East Scanning aims to build trusting, long term business relationships with our clientele. We identify the following values as core to our business operations:
We aim to be honest and open with our clients at all times.
New technology has changed the way we operate. We embrace new innovations in work practices and equipment.
We take on any negative or positive feedback with an open mind to allow us to become better as an organisation.
Our team will go above and beyond to ensure our clients expectations are either met or exceeded.
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.
Depth of GPR penetration depends on the material being surveyed. For example, dry, sandy soils are ideal. This allows the radiation waves to penetrate further, whereas slow, wet, soils such as clay absorb the waves making it hard for the signal to penetrate. Our GP8000 can scan depths of 600mm-700mm.
While GPR technology does not determine what type of object/anomaly is being located we (the technicians) are very good at determining what type of reinforcing steel or electrical conduit is present.
We have found that our typical accuracy is +/- 5mm” to the center of the object (conduit, post tension cables, rebar) being located. Additionally, GPR can also inform you of the depth of the object in the concrete. We have found that our typically accuracy when locating the depth of an object embedded in concrete is +/- 10%.
Ground penetrating radar is an extremely efficient and fast technology able to scan large areas in with ease. Our standard layout for a typical core drilling location is 1m² in size. It will likely take us about 20 minutes to scan and mark this area.
