Know More Before You Core!

Accu-Scan GPR is a non-destructive, non-invasive, subsurface imaging company located in Queens, NYC. Know before you build with state-of-the-art ground scanning technology!

We are equipped with a combination of technologies designed to address a wide range of applications: concrete imaging, utility locating, video inspections, as well as geophysical and environmental applications.

Our equipment is ideal for detecting metallic and non-metallic objects embedded in the subsurface and in concrete structures. Our equipment can inspect or investigate subsurface soil conditions for abnormalities and determines if concrete structures were built as designed.

Accu-Scan’s versatility comes from using a combination of ground-penetrating radar, electromagnetic detection, and video inspection technology.

We service all five NYC boroughs, Northern NY, and parts of NJ (within one hour of Columbus Circle).

Accu-Scan GPR

Accu-Scan GPR uses the best technology available to prevent damage, facility shutdowns, service disruptions, project delays and worker injury from our operation using due diligence.

Utility Locating Applications

Utility Locating Applications

Accu-Scan GPR uses a combination of electromagnetic detection and ground penetrating radar to locate subsurface targets prior to digging, trenching, or conducting site assessments. Our equipment is ideal for locating the position and depth of metallic/non-metallic objects, including service utilities and PVC piping in various soils…all in real time.

Benefits of Scanning with Accu-Scan GPR

  • Find utilities such as electric, gas, oil, steam, telecommunications, water, reclaimed water, sewer, and drainage.
  • Locate metallic & non-metallic piping
  • Detailed investigation of any available records, plans, and maps.
  • No physical connection to a utility is required
  • Non-destructively covers large areas in just a few hours
  • 3D Data enables precise utility mapping in complex congested areas
  • Real time target analysis for on the spot decisions
  • Detect utilities without any prior knowledge of their respective location

Concrete Applications

Concrete Applications

The concrete imaging system that Accu-Scan GPR utilizes, specializes in the non-destructive investigation and imaging of concrete:

  • Power Cable Detector Mode (PCD) for detecting electrical.
  • Drill Mode for avoiding any critical embedded elements in concrete
  • Concrete Slabs, Walls, Columns, Ceilings, Decks, and Balconies
  • Detects metallic and nonmetallic piping
  • Early detection of voids
  • Concrete Inspections
  • On-Site 3D imaging

Environmental Applications

Environmental Applications

Accu-Scan GPR uses ground-penetrating radar to non-intrusively examine the subsurface for environmental hazards. This saves money in remediation costs and other inconveniences!

Environmental Hazards Avoided:

  • Underground Storage Tanks
  • Drums
  • Oil Tanks
  • Soil Contamination
  • Cesspools
  • Leech Fields

Geophysical Applications

Geophysical Applications

Accu-Scan GPR uses ground penetrating radar which is a geophysical method that provides high resolution three dimensional images of the earth’s subsurface. GPR is one of the most effective tools in use for diagnosing subsurface conditions and detecting hidden hazards. It is a proactive measure to minimize the dangers and inconveniences caused by:

  • Voids
  • Sinkholes
  • Subsidence
  • Settlement
  • Soil Disruption

Cemetery Mapping

Cemetery Mapping

Accu-Scan GPR uses ground penetrating radar which is the perfect tool for locating graves non-invasively and provide valuable information to cemetery owners.

  • Location, depth, and positioning of graves
  • Locate unmarked graves
  • Locate buried bodies and gravesites to correctly reposition marker stones that are often misplaced
  • Survey cemetery property for available burial space
  • Confirm graves in historical cemeteries



Our technology can help you work safely when performing concrete penetrations and increase productivity when hazardous embedded targets are mapped.


Accu-Scan GPR is the perfect solution to core holes for risers in a safe manner, without any costly delays or accidents.


Accu-Scan GPR eliminates guessing.  To keep price down and productivity up, moving forward without delays or accidents is crucial.


Our GPR technology can assist with the preliminary designs by eliminating the possibility of finding surprises hiding below the surface.


Cemeteries are often old, with inaccurate or missing records. Accu-Scan GPR maps out and detects any type of difference in the soils dielectric.


Whether it’s a project in the backyard or the remodeling of your home, give us a call to scan the area ahead of time so you know what to expect.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) enables non-destructive testing in concrete or earth applications. Locate conduits, pipe, rebar, post tension cables, voids, cesspools, and more under ground or behind walls.


Through electromagnetic radiation, we can locate live conduits or attach a signal to any metallic utility and trace and map the route it takes.


With a high-resolution video camera and the help of 6 LED bulbs attached to 200′ of rod, we can capture a crisp, clear image of interior of pipes, walls, ceilings or crawl spaces. And all the footage is captured in high-quality digital video file.
