Scan before you drill

There are a lot of items that can be hidden with in concrete. Prior to core drilling, it is recommended that the area is scanned to locate any buried obstructions such as rebar, tension cables, conduits, voids, or pipes, in concrete before we cut or core drill.

Our team can be on site within hours of your call to quickly scan large sections of concrete and provide you a 3 dimensional image that helps simplify job planning.
