Ground Penetrating Radar

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has widespread applications for locating buried pipes and cables, subsurface utilities, assessing bridge deck and structure deterioration, monitoring environmental conditions or buried underground storage tanks and septic systems. We also utilize BC One Call to ensure our projects stay safe and on track.

GPR is also widely used for assessing the interior of concrete floors, locating cables and conduits embedded in concrete decks, columns, walls and ceilings, or to locate embedded rebar and wire mesh.

We offer both Concrete Scanning and Ground Penetrating Radar services.
