Detecting Objects Embedded in Concrete

Baker Testing offers Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) inspection services to accurately detect and mark unseen structures that are embedded in concrete.

Ground Penetrating Radar is an effective method to locate, mark, and avoid embedded structures in concrete before coring or cutting.

Commercial and Residential

GPR is frequently used in commercial, residential, renovation, and re-design projects including office buildings, hospitals, and garages. For existing structures, inspection of concrete aids architectural and engineering evaluations.

GPR scanning can detect and locate reinforced steel, cables, conduit, HVAC, plumbing, radiant heat tubes, voids, and other structures embedded in concrete. GPR inspection is a cost effective safety tool to prevent damage of building utilities and to retain structural integrity.
