Concrete and Rebar Investigation

At Subscan we utilise the latest ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology to locate and measure structural reinforcement within elements of building structures.  These can include floor slabs, reinforced concrete and concrete beams.  Furthermore, it can detect voids within unusual structures, such as bridges.

Core sampling is a more traditional method, but it adds unnecessary cost, damage, and risk to a project.  By utilizing our scanning technology, we reduce the need for invasive techniques and provide a quick, easy service that minimises any disruption to businesses or the environment.

By understanding the location of reinforcement, the risk of striking the steelwork or any hidden objects during construction is reduced.  This will prevent injuries on site, equipment damage, or the deterioration of existing concrete structures.


Experienced Professionals: Our team comprises skilled engineers and technicians with extensive knowledge in concrete and rebar inspection.

State-of-the-Art Technology: We use advanced equipment and testing methods to deliver accurate and reliable results.

Detailed Reporting: You’ll receive a comprehensive report detailing our findings, along with expert recommendations for any necessary repairs or reinforcements.

Safety and Compliance: Our investigation helps ensure your structure meets safety codes and regulations, providing peace of mind to occupants and stakeholders.
