All our Technicians are Certifed Concrete Scanners

Certified Technicians Ensure Quality Results

For general, electrical and mechanical contractors that need to find objects embedded in concrete or need to identify a safe location for cutting or coring, Terraprobe can quickly, accurately, safely and cost effectively use our Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) expertise to accomplish what you need.

Unlike many other GPR service providers, Terraprobe maintains a broad inventory of leading edge equipment and software used by CERTIFIED technicians to deliver the best possible results.

It is critical to use the correct hardware and software for each application. In many cases we find that more than one type of radar is required to accurately complete the job. Terraprobe has the experience and equipment to do the job right!

Locate In-Slab Structures for Coring Clearance and Structural Analysis

One of the most common GPR scanning applications is Concrete Scanning. Terraprobe has completed thousands of concrete scanning projects and many of our technicians have completed thousands of scanning locations themselves.

In fact, we have accumulated so much experience in concrete scanning that we are now conducting GPR Concrete Scanning courses around the world.

Our technicians can locate virtually any structures that are embedded in a concrete slab including the following items:

  • • Locate rebar map rebar spacing and depth in concrete, including slab-on- grade with multiple layers of rebar/other embedded elements.
  • • Locate conduit map plastic and metal conduits with precision to avoid damage when drilling, cutting, or coring.
  • • Locate post-tension cables map post-tension cables with precision to avoid damage when drilling, cutting, or coring through post-tensioned concrete.
  • • Locate voids under concrete structures, behind walls, in tunnels, etc.
  • • Measure slab thickness determine and record the slab thickness for both slab-on-grade and suspended slabs, determine rebar depth to measure concrete cover in slabs, beams, and columns

One of the most common reasons for scanning concrete is to reduce/eliminate the risk of damaging embedded structures when coring or cutting concrete. Our customers like the convenience of arranging for coring/cutting services and GPR scanning at the same time. We are pleased to provide that service, however, if you have your own favourite coring provider we are more than happy to do the scanning.

We are pleased to provide estimates based on drawings submitted or over the phone or by email.

See the Scanning Results

The information resulting from our scans can be reported in a format ranging from simply marking the location of obstructions and optimum cutting/coring location on the slab to one page reports to full reporting with AutoCAD. Terraprobe employs geophysicists and engineers and we know how to produce top quality reports.
