When you have Special Inspection requirements, Coastal will review your drawings, specifications, Statement of Special Inspection (SSI) if available. Coastal will develop a Statement of Special Inspections (SSI) for you, customizing a program best suited to your needs. We provide complete special inspections program; we will function as an agent or special inspector based on your project needs.

Coastal's Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system for scanning of all types of surfaces to help you identify the contents of concrete, soils, and underground utilities. Coastal has the capability to determine concrete slab thickness in real-time. Operating in 2D mode for real-time locating, and 3D mode for x-ray like images of the concrete, the system incorporates two types of automatic target detection. This enables us to interpret and report data accurately. Using an integrated laser positioning system. Coastal accurately marks targets which helps us to ensure efficient and accurate data collection.
