Concrete Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Using our top of the line GSSI and Hilti ground penetrating radar equipment we will locate buried obstructions such as rebar, tension cables, conduits, voids, or pipes, in concrete before we cut or core drill.

Call CanWest for all your Concrete Anchoring Installs

CanWest will be on your site within hours of your call to quickly scan large sections of concrete. Our ground radar technology creates a detailed, three-dimensional image that makes job planning a snap.

GPR scanning technology is faster and safer than radiography (X Rays), which uses radiation for concrete scanning. Additionally, we can perform concrete testing through a depth of up to 18 inches and only need access to one side of the structure.

Find buried obstructions before it’s too late or measure the thickness of your concrete for better planning with GPR, the fast, safe concrete testing technology.

Call us today for your ground penetrating radar needs. Services in Calgary, Edmonton, and surrounding areas.

Canwest has many years’ experience in the scanning business.

In the last two years we have had a 98% success rate with our scanning, drilling & saw cutting, which in turn saved our clients thousands of dollars in expensive repair bills. Our scanner locates water lines, voids in concrete, in floor heating lines, power lines, computer lines, fibre optics, etc. Our new smaller scanning head gives greater definition in finding hard to see objects such as water pipes and voids in the concrete. We have also done several large scanning jobs on bridges to locate rebar before concrete milling. We have references available for any type of scanning you may need.

Included in our pricing:

  • 2 experienced staff
  • 1 Scanning Unit
  • Core Drilling
  • Core Catching
  • Removal of Cores Off-Site and Vacuum Cleanup
