Specialist GPR Ferro Scanning in London

Ferro scan

Why risk drilling through important structural supports, utility services or important pipework in your London property?

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

Before carrying out any structural or drilling changes, it's absolutely essential that you know exactly where important structural features, like pipework reinforcement, are located along with utility services. Our high quality GPR equipment will tell you exactly that. Able to locate all kinds of objects in multiple layers up to a maximum of 800mm in cured concrete, pavements, natural ground and bridge decks, meaning you can be safe in the knowledge that you are nowhere near important structural supports, utility services or vital pipework.

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


Using pulse technology, the GP8800 and the GP8000, manufactured by industry experts Proceq, detects anything in the required ground, wall or slab area and provided expert data analysis, report generation and evaluation that are visible both in the field, including a 3D augmented reality view, raw data view or a rotatable 3D image post scan on an iPad.
