Concrete Scanning

Ecotech is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment that is ideal for a range of non-destructive concrete imaging and surveying applications, offering time and cost savings for projects. Our advanced tools include ground penetrating radar (GPR), rebar detection instruments, and metal detection tools. With these tools, Ecotech excels at accurately locating and mapping embedded utilities, rebar, rebar patterns, post-tension cables, PVC pipe, electrical conduits, steel and iron pipes, and radiant heating systems within concrete structures. 

By transmitting radio waves through the concrete, a radargram is produced, which is then interpreted by our skilled technicians. They can determine the material type, location, and depth within the concrete. This capability is especially beneficial for slab-on-grade structures, where both sides of the concrete are inaccessible for direct inspection.

Real-time data collection and display enable us to provide on-the-spot results, ensuring no damages or delays occur during core drilling, slab cutting, or other invasive procedures. By utilizing our concrete scanning services, we conduct non-destructive assessments to detect materials and voids within concrete slabs. This method prevents workers from unintentionally drilling, coring, or cutting into embedded utilities, safeguarding the structural integrity of the concrete.

Concrete scanning plays a crucial role in subsurface utility engineering, private utility locating, utility location in concrete, pre-construction mapping of utilities, underground utility locating, and safety hazard detection. By employing this practice, we mitigate the risk of damage to concrete structures.
