Concrete Scanning

Concrete scanning, or concrete x-ray allows accurate inspections of concrete structures such as floors, walls, slabs, bridges, decks, for the detection of objects and features, i.e. rebar, post tension cables, voids, as well as the measurement of slab thickness.


Prior to concrete sawing, cutting, core holing or drilling, concrete scanning can provide the location of hidden features that could cause damage to machinery, pose a danger to the operator or compromise the integrity of the structure itself.


Concrete Scanning Applications include;
• Structural Steel
• Post tension cables

• Cable ducts

• Concrete Assessment and Structural Investigation • Slab thickness

Leak Detection

Leaks in domestic, commercial or idustrial pipe work can cost tens of thousands of dollars per year. If you suspect you have a leak due to a high water bill or unexplained moisture around your premises, don't wait for the damage to be done or the excessive bill to arrive.

Using state of the art acoustic equipment our highly experienced technician can perform a survey of your premises to identify any underground leak before undertaking any works, Our technician has pipe line construction experience and understands the methodology in pipe lines and newly installed pipe lines that will not pass a pressure test.


Hydro Vacuum Excavation

Hydro Vacuum Excavation/Non Destructive Digging is the safest method of excavation available. Hydro Vacuum excavation involves the use of high pressure water to blast away the ground material, sand, dirt and water making the waste material removable by a powerful vacuum unit. Vacuumed waste material is contained for easy removal from the building site.

Hydro Vacuum excavation supports the application of utility location. Hydro Vacuum excavation can target excavation areas where there is a high density of multiple utility lines and traditional excavation services are considered too risky. Ground material is cleared and removed with minimal environmental impact safely exposing the underground utilities. The actual position of the utilities, type of service, size & actual depth can be verified allowing for safe mechanical excavation around the exposed services.


Hydro vacuum excavation applications including;

    • Safely exposing pipe, cables and utilities before excavation
    • Trench made difficult due to underground obstacles
    • Footing holes due to the congestion of existing underground utilities
    • Safe and effective tree remediation
    • Excavation in confined areas where access is restricted with conventional machinery
    • Removal of silt from pits, drains, culverts and conduits
    • Removal of ground water from footing excavations
