GPR Concrete Scanning

We employ expertly trained analysts that use state-of-the art GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) equipment to find common embedded objects and other subsurface hazards that are hidden in the concrete.

GPR Public Utility Scanning

Striking an underground utility can result in great costs. Repairing a utility line can be expensive, not to mention that you and your community would lose the utility service itself. Most importantly, striking a subsurface object can cause serious injuries to you or the workers on the site.

GPR Private Utility Services

So you're about to dig or excavate on your property? Removing a tree? Or maybe you're installing a fence? It is always a wise idea to locate underground utilities before performing any type of digging or excavating on your property. This is where a private locator, like Structure Scan, would step in and complete private utility locating.


  • Pipes and conduits
  • Post-tension cables
  • Utilities and live wires
  • Rebar and rebar patterns
  • Voids within the concrete
  • Structural integrity of the concrete

Our skilled GPR analysts can also detect voids within or underneath concrete slabs. With that being said, concrete scanning is generally a complementary service to concrete cutting, coring or grinding. Our services can be pivotal in your construction projects when it comes to cost reduction and damage prevention. Scan before you cut so that you won’t have to encounter financial loss.
