Ground Penetrating Radar Surveys
A Ground Penetrating Radar survey (also known as Ground Radar, Ground Probing Radar, GPR and Surface Penetrating Radar) provides a non-intrusive and non-destructive method of surveying the Subsurface including Concrete Imaging. It is a highly cost effective non-intrusive (ND) technique, offering a rapid means of obtaining subsurface information from a variety of materials including soil, concrete and asphalt.
Ground Penetrating Radar is a geophysical technique originally developed for mapping geological features, but it is now increasingly used for Civil Engineering applications. Sandberg specialise in the use of GPR in the Construction Industry including:
- Concrete imaging and rebar detection
- Concrete floor slab surveys
- Chimney flue location
- Locating tendon ducts
- Locating under floor heating pipes
- Retaining wall surveys
- Wall and slab thickness measurement
- Thickness and contamination of railway ballast
- Utility surveys
- Void location
Sandberg offer a comprehensive site Ground Penetrating Radar survey service, including off-site data processing, analysis, interpretation and reporting.
