Scanning/Imaging

Interstate Sawing- Scanning Photo for website

GROUND-PENETRATING RADAR (GPR) IS A GEOPHYSICAL METHOD THAT USES RADAR PULSES TO IMAGE THE SUBSURFACE.

Interstate Scanning uses GPR to locate and document the position of embedded electrical conduits, rebar, PVC pipes, metal pipes and post tension cables buried inside a concrete slab. Knowing the location prior to drilling, cutting or coring will save you time and money on your project.

Interstate Scanning provides you a detailed analysis of what is beneath the subsurface of a worksite. We will color-code all critical elements identified within your concrete, and provide options for site management at the time coring or cutting is underway.
