At Southern Cutting & Coring, our goal is to do the job the correct way the first time. In order to accomplish the task we use high-end ground penetrating radar scanning equipment. We know that construction professionals require a reliable, non destructive means to locate targets within concrete structures prior to drilling, cutting or coring.
2D & 3D Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Concrete inspection through GPR scanning ensures accuracy for locating rebar, post-tension cables and conduits. The GPR scanning process is a non invasive method of investigating concrete utilizing electromagnetic waves scanning up to 12″ of concrete. Our technicians are trained to guide the color display scanner with professionalism so that scans can be analyzed immediately with a state-of-the-art scan display. Images are 3D for an even easier on-the-spot interpretation.
Written reports can be made available for future reference. Collected data is in a raw format allowing for 2D and 3D images to be made easily available by hard copy, email or digital media. Southern Cutting & Coring includes in all GPR Scan reports, the location, the date and detailed findings, which give the contractor all the information they will need to make the best decision for their project.
