The Founders Of South East Scanning

South-East Scanning was founded by Aidan and Dion, two brothers from Melbourne, who brought together their extensive experience in the built environment and professional services sectors.

After relocating to South-East Queensland, they established South-East Scanning to fill a niche in the building and construction industry, specialising in ground-penetrating radar, concrete scanning, non-destructive testing, and utility locating services. Their background provided a strong foundation for the business, allowing them to offer expert insights and innovative solutions to meet the complex needs of their clients in the region.

At South-East Scanning, our mission is to help our clients understand sub-surface structures and mitigate their risk with our expertise in ground penetrating radar and utility detection. We are a family business with unique insights and a commitment to our clients' success.

We look forward to assisting you. Please call 0473 239 781 or use the form below for a fast response.

Is In Partnership With



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.
