Scanning Core Locations with Xradar Concrete Scanning

Xradar were contacted at the referral of structural engineers to perform a concrete scan in multiple survey locations in Downtown Toronto.


A construction client needed to core 22 locations on site, however, due to the location of the site, the slab thickness and the size of the areas of interest, X-ray was not a viable option. An Xradar technician attended the site and soon identified additional issues.

An enormous amount of conduit was detected in the slab and high voltage cables were known to be in the vicinity, all leading to the main electrical room next door to the tenants space. Unfortunately the design team did not factor in that cores could not take place in some proposed areas because of the large amount of conduit.


Utilizing Xradar's enhanced concrete scanning. our trained technician was able to survey all 22 proposed core locations, highlighting recommended areas for each core. These areas were then cored without incident and not even a bar was nicked.
