GRP Concrete Scanning and Service Locating

The industry we are in demands us to be available 24/7 which we are.

The team at GPR Concrete Scanning is Newcastle’s experts in concrete or slab scanning. We can provide the details in the structure strength and other details of concrete structures. Our detailed reports are able to assist engineering and construction companies to make informed decisions as well as trades people looking for sub service utilities

Why Use Concrete Scanning

There is always a risk of encountering rebar, conduits, and post tension cables during cutting, coring, or concrete drilling. GRP Concrete scanning technicians provides the technology and technical proficiency to help clients identify any obstacles and assist to safely and on budget deliver the project.

Cutting & Drilling Services

Our team utilise Husqvarna road-saws, demolition saws and quick-cut saws and core drills to give the best results. 

What is Concrete Scanning

Ground-penetrating radar GPR is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. This nondestructive method uses electromagnetic radiation in the microwave band (UHF/VHF frequencies) of the radio spectrum, and detects the reflected signals from subsurface structures. GPR can have applications in a variety of media, including rock, soil, ice, fresh water, pavements and structures. In the right conditions, practitioners can use GPR to detect subsurface objects, changes in material properties, and voids and cracks.[1]

GPR uses high-frequency (usually polarized) radio waves, usually in the range 10 MHz to 2.6 GHz. A GPR transmitter emits electromagnetic energy into the ground. When the energy encounters a buried object or a boundary between materials having different permittivities, it may be reflected or refracted or scattered back to the surface. A receiving antenna can then record the variations in the return signal. The principles involved are similar to seismology, except GPR methods implement electromagnetic energy rather than acoustic energy, and energy may be reflected at boundaries where subsurface electrical properties change rather than subsurface mechanical properties as is the case with seismic energy.

About Us

We are a division of PMS Datatech Services and many of our clients use both our services.We  have a large client base covering all types of commercial and industrial construction installation and maintenance including shop fitouts and building works ,shopping centre works and also domestic works.We work for nearly every trade in the building arena.

We are CM3 inducted which is a requirement of a lot of our clients like Westfield and Stockland.

This business although not a unique service is not a common service and our business covers a number of bases that most don’t.

While GPR has been around for established for 5 years, PMS Datatech has been around for approx. 40 yrs and that means reliability, and dependability when you need it most.
