SoftScan is solely dedicated to geophysical research in the construction industry (private & commercial). Using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Ultrasound (P & S wave) and Half Cell Potential, we can locate and map reinforcing, services, defects and corrosion within concrete and timber structures. Our reputation for thoroughness, accuracy and reliability is well known throughout the professional community, which rely upon the analysis we provide.
GPR was introduced into South Australia by SoftScan in 2004, however we have been active in the construction industry for over 40 years. This combined knowledge is invaluable when analysing GPR data, as it has provided us with a unique insight into structural design and therefore puts us at the forefront of structural GPR surveying in South Australia. Often referred to as “concrete x-ray” or “concrete scanning”, GPR is of technical advantage due to its speed, however it is not infallible and in inexperienced hands can lead to misinterpretation.
GROUND PENETRATING RADAR
Often referred to as “concrete x-ray” or “concrete scanning”, GPR is ideal for the locating and positioning of reinforcing or structural elements, locating of metallic or non-metallic services and the detection of voids.
We have multiple GPR collection units and the largest range of antennae frequencies in South Australia. This enables us to provide our clientele with the best available service and the sharpest and most accurate profiles.
