Concrete Scanning Services

Non Destructive Concrete Testing

Non-Destructive Testing, commonly known as NDT, is one of the ways we make sure the condition and quality of the concrete is good before we utilise equipment to locate objects below the surface.

If our testing comes back positive, we can begin locating potential objects, knowing we won’t be damaging or destroying the concrete.  

NON-DESTRUCTIVE CONCRETE TESTING

Void Detection Scanning

Ensuring that the ground beneath is safe to begin digging into or to be mechanically excavated, can be done through the use of void detection. We use a set of industry leading equipment to scan the ground and make sure there are no voids beneath the surface. 

Not doing so can mean that sinkholes can be formed and lives can potentially be lost. Make sure you know what is beneath the ground you are digging into! 

VOID DETECTION

We use state-of-the-art concrete scanning equipment to quickly scan and inspect
concrete spaces.

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
identified.

GROUND PENETRATING RADAR SCANNING

Non Destructive Concrete Scanning

Accurate locating of underground assets is vital to the safety and success of any project. We’re proud to be Dial Before You Dig certified, so you know that your project is in qualified hands. 

Here at South East Scanning, we use a combination of radio-detection equipment as well as ground-penetrating radar (GPR) technology to locate water pipes, communications cables, stormwater pipes, electrical cables and conduit, sewer pipes and fibre-optic cables.

GEOTECHNICAL SURVEYING

Geotechnical surveying is the process of studying the physical properties of soil and rock formations to determine their suitability for construction projects. This involves collecting and analysing soil and rock samples, conducting field tests, and assessing geological and environmental conditions.

South East Scanning is the best choice for geotechnical surveying due to their experienced team of professionals and state-of-the-art equipment. We use non-invasive methods such as ground-penetrating radar and electromagnetic induction to provide accurate and reliable data. With a focus on safety, efficiency, and customer satisfaction, South East Scanning is the top choice for geotechnical surveying services.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
