Expert Concrete Scanning Services
The assessment and scanning of concrete structures are crucial parts of the construction process. There is an emerging requirement that all structures (including concrete), be cleared before any cutting, drilling or coring operation commences.
3D structure scanning efficiently and effectively reveals obstacles embedded in concrete. It also locates utilities without interrupting any of the day-to-day operations of your business.
When you consider the costs associated with repairing damaged, embedded post-tension cables, utility conduits and structural reinforcing steel – our concrete scanning services are not just cost effective, they should be considered essential for all construction projects.
How 3D Concrete Scanning Radar (CSR) works
Using 3D optical structure scan radar technology, Abaxa offers non-destructive inspection, locating and evaluation of concrete structures.
This concrete scanning technology quickly, easily and safely locates embedded metallic (and non-metallic) targets within concrete structures before drilling, cutting or coring.
Also, structure scanning is used to evaluate concrete structures to assess the condition of the reinforced steel, to verify the centre-to-centre spacing, as well as the depth from both the surface and the bottom of the slab.
Using Concrete Scanning to reduce strike risk
Our advanced 3D concrete scanning technology allows us to locate and identify hidden features that could cause safety risks to workers or damage machinery during drilling, cutting or coring. Concrete scanning and testing will also reduce the risk of damaging the structure itself during these activities.
A clear safety-first solution
You can be guaranteed safety comes first with Abaxa’s non-destructive optical concrete structure scanning. Our concrete scanning service will:
- Locate safe areas to drill, cut or demolish
- Establish the location and depth of ‘steel reinforcement’
- Establish the location and depth of ‘post-tension cables’
- Locate and measures the depth of embedded metallic or plastic conduits in concrete slabs, walls or structural members
- Determine concrete slab thickness
- Locate metallic and non-metallic targets in walls and floors
- Facilitate structure inspection for bridges, monuments, walls, towers, tunnels, balconies, garages and decks
- Assess the condition of the structure, allowing you to map relative concrete condition for rehabilitation planning
- Facilitate ceiling inspection
- Identify defects or damage inside concrete (voids, fractures)
Efficient and Cost-Effective
The structure scan, with 1600Mhz antennae, collects data on-site and simplifies what has often been a complicated process.
Our structure scans present data clearly for real-time and in-the-box data acquisition, display and analysis.
It’s a reliable, faster, safer and more cost-effective option than other competing concrete scanning systems or traditional testing methods.
We can even locate targets in real time when only single-sided access is available.

We might have to get a little more scanned on some sites due to scope changes , if this is the case I would definitely be requesting your team to come and do these for us , I will let you know if/when that will be in the coming weeks.
Thanks again , make sure you give your team a pat on the back from all of us here
