WHAT IS CONCRETE SCANNING?
Concrete scanning is used to inspect concrete slabs or columns before coring or drilling in renovations and new construction projects. ACS Underground concrete scans are completed using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology for quick and accurate inspections. GPR is both safe and noninvasive; by using transmitted waves and their reflected signals, we can analyze the subsurface to detect embedded objects.
Concrete scanning is used to check:
WHY IS CONCRETE SCANNING IMPORTANT?
A concrete scan is critical to job site safety and can locate and identify objects within the concrete. This is done to prevent injury, damage, and additional costs during building.
A fast and efficient concrete scan using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) by ACS Underground can give your project engineers vital information on the concrete depth, objects within the concrete, and any possible air pockets that are undetectable from the surface .
A concrete scan is vital during construction to:
- Help reduce personal injury risk
- Simplify drilling, cutting, and coring
- Minimize the risk of damage to utilities, rebar, post-tension cables, pipes, and conduits
- Preserve the structural integrity of the concrete
- Eliminate costly mid-project repairs
WHAT CAN CONCRETE SCANNING DETECT?
Before coring, drilling, or cutting through a concrete structure, a concrete scan helps identify the location and depth of embedded objects with high resolution Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR).
Concrete scanning by ACS Underground can help to accurately and economically detect:
- Mesh conduits
- Non-metallic and metallic utilities
- Post-tension cables
- Pre-tension cables
- Slab thickness and voids
YOU MAY BE WONDERING – DO I NEED A CONCRETE SCAN?
You need a concrete scan if you plan on cutting, coring, drilling, etc. existing concrete during construction. Using GPR, our team at ACS Underground can scan the concrete in question to safely detect what’s inside. ACS Underground Solutions offers concrete scanning for projects in CT, NY, NJ, MA, and RI.
HOW MUCH DOES A CONCRETE SCAN COST?
The cost of a concrete scan varies based on project location, size of area(s) to be scanned, and the complexity of the embedded objects; but the benefits far outweigh the scan’s price. To prevent delays during construction, reduce unforeseen risks, and prevent additional costs during building, schedule a concrete scan. This will help keep your project on time and on budget.
