Pipes and Conduits Scanning and Location

Concrete Scanning & Conduit Location in Newcastle

Before drilling or cutting into concrete, it is critical to determine what is in that concrete. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) plays a vital role in mapping the presence of pipes and conduits below the concrete.

GPR will save time on the job and more importantly, prevent serious injury from any live cables.

So before you cut into your concrete slab, contact the experts at GPR Concrete.

Latest Concrete Scanning Technology

GPR Concrete uses the latest ground penetrating radar technology and electromagnetic field technology to accurately scan and locate all types of pipes and conduits in concrete slabs.

Our concrete specialists can conduct surveys for:

  • House extensions/additions
  • Pool Installations
  • Fencing
  • Retaining Walls
  • Landscaping
  • New Construction

How Does GPR Scanning Work?

The process is quite straightforward:

  • Ultra-high frequency radio waves are transmitted into the ground
  • Energy is reflected back from buried objects in the ground, such as pipes and conduits
  • Reflected waves are captured and sent to the equipment control unit
  • A computer calculates the strength of radio waves and the amount of time it took for the waves to reach the machine, which indicated the presence of underground utilities
  • We use GPR technology prior to coring, sawing or drilling concrete to avoid hitting underground pipes and conduits, which could otherwise result in injury or even death and will be very costly to repair.
