At CSI Concrete Scanning and Investigation our focus is to increase the safety of onsite coring, cutting and drilling of concrete through non-destructive ground penetrating radar. We work closely with our clients to provide information on where to cut, drill or core so that all rebar, utilities etc are avoided and no costly errors are made that could result in site downtime, injury or even death.

We use state of the art technology that has been developed by the world’s leading ground penetrating radar manufacturer to locate and record details of conduits and services. Our detailed reporting allows information to be retrieved for further work at any location

Our skilled technicians use a range of antennas that allow us to accurately locate rebar, post tensioning, conduits and voiding within and under concrete slabs as well as detect utilities, subsidence, services, data, storm water and sewerage to a depth of 5m.

Why Should You Use Ground Penetrating Radar Instead Of X-ray?

With the use of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) our technicians can work safely around other trades without the need to either evacuate or create an exclusion zone on the work site which was the case with the old concrete x-ray technology.

Ground Penetrating Radar Is Also Referred To As Concrete X-ray Or Concrete Scanning.

X-ray operators need access to both sides of the structure as the transmitter, or source, and the receiver needs to be opposed to each other.

Ground Penetrating Radar only needs access to one side of the structure being tested because RADAR has the transmitter and receiver in one unit and relies on the reflection of radio waves to produce a meaningful image.

X-ray is damaging to the human body so exclusion zones around the area being tested are necessary, meaning part or all of the site will need to be evacuated.

The energy emitted from our GPR units is many times lower than a mobile phone. This means that there is no need for a site to be evacuated nor there is any risk of harmful exposure.

Concrete X-ray can only produce one image on each exposure meaning that large areas are very time consuming and costly to investigate as the transmitter and receiver need to be constantly moved.

Ground Penetrating Radar can scan large areas in one or more scrolling images producing a vertical sectional view of the test area much like a MRI from a hospital. These images can be placed together to form a virtual 3D model.

Whether it be

  • metallic gas pipelines
  • terracotta or concrete sewers
  • storm water pipes,
  • PVC water mains
  • phone lines
  • fibre optic or data cables
  • or any buried target

our technicians can locate them quickly and accurately.

Our array of antennas even allow us to locate geological targets, such as changes in subsoil consistency and composition for environmental surveys or mining purposes
