Locate Hazards in Concrete
Concrete scanning allows our partners to safely core or drill through walls, floors, and concrete slabs while avoiding damages on renovations and new construction projects. MPL uses Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for quick and accurate locating to know exactly what is going on inside and under concrete walls, columns, ceiling or floors.
Not knowing what is inside concrete structures can lead to costly delays, mistakes & safety hazards on most job sites.
By using transmitted waves and their reflected signals, an MPL project manager can analyze the subsurface to detect embedded objects If you're looking to mitigate risks and keep all job site safe, concrete scanning is the right service for your project.

Concrete Scanning FAQs
How do I know if I need a concrete scan?
You know if you will need a concrete scan if you plan on sawing, cutting, coring, or drilling in or through any existing concrete during construction.
How much does a concrete scan cost?
The cost of a scan varies based on the size of area to be scanned and the job site location.
Can it identify the difference between rebar, post tension cables, electrical conduits and other embedded materials?
While the scanning technology does not clarify what type of object is being found, we are able to identify it by looking at all available data to determine the type of reinforcing steel or electrical conduit that is there.
How precise is the scan?
MPL's typical accuracy is +/- ¼" to the center of the object in concrete. We can also pinpoint the depth of every object we locate with an accuracy of +/- 10-15%.
Are there any health risks associated with the ground penetrating radar?
There are no health concerns with our project managers, any nearby workers, or the public in the building where the work is taking place.
