In simple terms, if you know exactly what is in the wall, slab, ground or column and where it is located, you will avoid hitting any pipework, steel reinforcing, structural supports or services. This prevention method is absolutely vital in making sure that there are reduced costs 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 data analysis, evaluation and report generation that is visible both in the field, including a rotatable 3D image post can on an iPad, raw data view or a 3D augmented reality view. 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.
