Ferro scan

Why risk drilling through utility services, structural supports or importanrt pipework in your Canterbury property? Hire Southern Drilling to carry out GPR ferro scanning. 

Working throughout Kent and the South East, including Canterbury, we use the most effective and accurate Ground Penetrating Radar and Proceq scanning equipment on the market today, the GP8000 and GP8800, to ensure that you know every hidden detail and aspect of the structure before any drilling, coring or design work takes place.

Before undertaking any structural or drilling changes at your Canterbury property, it is incredibly important that you know exactly where important structural features and other pipework reinforcement are located, along with utility services. Our accurate and high quality GPR Proceq scanning equipment will tell you exactly that. Able to quickly identify and locate all kinds of objects in bridge decks, cured concrete, natural ground and pavements, our GPR scanning equipment means you can be safe in the knowledge that you are nowhere near important structural supports, utility services or vital pipework.

Regardless where you are based across Kent and the South East, including Canterbury, arrange your FREE survey and no obligation ferro scan quotation at your convenience today; simply call our experienced GPR ferro scanning team on 01474 822785.


Put simply, if you know exactly what is in the slab, column, ground or wall and where it is located, you will avoid hitting any steel reinforcing, structural supports, pipework or services. This prevention method is absolutely vital in ensuring that costs are kept to a minimum and the health and safety of all involved is prioritised.


Utilising pulse technology, the GP8800 and GP8000, manufactured by industry experts Proceq, detects anything in the required wall, ground or slab area and provides expert evaluation, report generation and data analysis that is visible both in the field, including a 3D augmented reality view, raw data view or a rotatable 3D image post scan on an iPad. This will also include a fully generated report that is sent back to the office. Downloaded information can then be used to create detailed documents with data and diagrams for analysis by our GPR engineers in real time.

  • Drilling and coring in concrete structures
