Why is Concrete imaging so important? It will help avoid serious risks of work-related injuries by knowing what’s below a concrete surface before you drill.
Damaging an important component poses personal injury risks to your team and will set back your project immensely.
For example, if a team member hits an electrical conduit, they could suffer serious harm. Damaging the conduit also means timely and costly repairs before you can move on with the project.
So before cutting, drilling, coring or sawing concrete, find out what lies within using concrete imaging and scanning.
Protect your project budgets, keep the project on time and ensure the safety of your team with ACS’s concrete imaging services.
LOCATING EMBEDDED OBJECTS
Many ACS clients need to drill through concrete. Before drilling, cutting, or coring through any concrete structure, ACS can identify the location and depth of embedded objects in the structure using high resolution Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). ACS Underground Solutions can help you accurately, reliably, and economically locate:
- Non-metallic and metallic utilities
- Mesh conduits
- Post-tension cables
- Pre-tension cables
- Slab thickness and voids

Benefits of Concrete Scanning
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a smart way to learn about what you can’t see beneath the surface. Here are some of the benefits of concrete scanning.
- Evaluate large areas quickly
- Generally, penetrates depths of 18-24 inches
- Less expensive compared to alternatives, such as X-rays
- Doesn’t require access to both sides of the concrete like X-ray imaging does
- Accurate location detection within ¼ of an inch
Using GPR requires expertise as it identifies that there is something below the concrete surface but not exactly what it is. By marking out the pattern, an expert can tell by the shape and directionality of the pattern what type of materials you’ll be working with. That way, you know how to handle it once you disrupt the concrete.
