Learn About Island Scanning 

Island Scanning was established in 2011. Working within the concrete cutting industry the owner, Scott Wilson, saw the need for utilizing available technology prior to concrete cutting to reduce the risk of costly damage. Having a firm understanding of scope of work when concrete cutting or coring the transition into concrete scanning was natural.

Now, with 12 years experience in the scanning industry Island Scanning offers a wealth of knowledge. Serving all areas of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, and affordable rates, Island Scanning makes concrete scanning an obtainable service for all.

Happy Customers

On a recent project of ours we needed to core some holes to accommodate changes to the fire sprinkler design. One location in particular required two 5″ holes through the slab. Having been onsite when the deck was being formed, I knew that there was a lot of conduit and cable crowded together in the slab in that location. When Scott arrived to scan the slab it was raining so he had to scan it on a ladder, from the underside. He located and marked out all the conduit and bar in the area and found us the openings we needed. There was very little room for error. When we cored, the cores came out and not a single piece of conduit, cable, or rebar had been touched. We were all very impressed with and thankful for Scott’s accuracy. The reliable service the Scott provides is a great asset when making critical cores or cuts through concrete.

“Just wanted to let you know everything went well here. We drilled 20 – 4″ deep holes and managed to dodge all of the in-floor heating lines and rebar.”

“I have used Island Scanning a number of times and on multiple occasions Scott has saved us from costly damage to service lines, including fibre optic cables and electrical conduits. Each time, the Engineers drawings stated that nothing was in the concrete at the locations we were cutting into. Now I consider Concrete Scanning to be an invaluable tool.”
