concrete scanning


A concrete scan is the preliminary step to executing a concrete demolition or concrete work of any kind. The plumbing, fiber optics, rebar, tension cables and other items that may be contained within concrete walls must be located. A concrete scanner will provide real time images to mark the location of these components.

Concrete scanning services can offer image-based detection and protect the utility of items encased in concrete. When construction teams plan a project based on accurate concrete scan images, they will avoid mishaps or delays.

Concrete scanning is most commonly performed with a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). Whether you face a new construction project or are carrying out a renovation, you can’t afford the cost of damage to structurally vital or costly materials. The cutting, coring and drilling process should be based on the right data from an effective concrete scan. Ground penetrating radar scanning the non-invasive and efficient choice to achieve this.

GPR scanning is part of our process. The experts at Tendon Systems can read concrete scan images and understand various aspects about a concrete structure. This understanding will inform the project. In concrete scanning, you may detect:

  • Concrete reinforcement
  • Concrete thickness
  • Voids, including air gaps in concrete slab on grade and more
  • Embedded electrical lines and wires
  • Fiber optic cables
  • Reinforcing steel
Any project, from installing drains to demoing a concrete structure, should begin with a concrete scan.

concrete coring

Tendon Systems provides comprehensive engineering and construction work. Our concrete coring work is performed for general contractors, concrete contractors, MEP contractors, MEP engineers, structural engineers and some forensic engineers as well as building owners and managers.

A concrete core project is accomplished through the removal of cylindrical sections of concrete.Core drilling concrete requires highly capable machines and operators. A concrete core drill penetrates the slab with precision. Any inaccuracies can result in high cost repairs or incredible structural damage.

Concrete drilling and concrete coring are often performed to enhance structural strength. The entire process should be dust free, non-percussive and give off low noise, making it an ideal choice for active work sites. Holes may be drilled at numerous angles. Tendon Systems has knowledgeable teams that can achieve optimal results even in confined spaces or sensitive areas. With minimal disruption and virtually no cosmetic damage, concrete coring has many useful applications.
