Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

We use ground penetrating radar (GPR), a non-invasive technique which uses radar pulses to send an electromagnetic signal to locate utilities precisely and without disturbing the surface. With this technology, our team can precisely locate the position of buried assets.  

Benefits of Ground Penetrating Radar:  

  • Accurate location of underground assets and utilities: Provides precise location of pipes, cables and other infrastructure, ensuring reliable project planning.  
  • Non-destructive and non-invasive: Minimise disturbance to the ecosystem and the earth, lowering the need for expensive repairs.  
  • Minimises risk of damaging existing infrastructure: Helps avoid accidental strikes on buried location of utilities, enhancing project safety.  

Concrete Scanning

We provide concrete scanning services in Melbourne to find embedded items in concrete, such as post-tension cables and rebar. With this technology, we can plan out the arrangement of these materials without using invasive techniques. This helps prevent any amount of structural disturbance.

Benefits of Concrete Scanning for Safe Excavation:  

  • Detects Embedded Objects in Concrete: Our services make use of innovative technology to locate embedded items in concrete. 
  • Prevents Costly Damage and Delays: We reduce the possibility of unintentional harm by identifying these items before excavation or building operations start.
