First Class GPR Ferro Scanning in Orpington

Ferro scan

Why take the risk of drilling through important pipework, utility services or structural supports in your Orpington property? Hire the experts at Southern Drilling to undertake highly accurate and effective GPR ferro scanning! 

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

Before undertaking any structural changes or drilling, it is incredibly important that you know exactly where important pipework reinforcement and structural features are situated, along with any utility services too. 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 natural ground, bridge decks, pavements and cured concrete, our GPR scanning equipment means you can be safe in the knowledge that you are nowhere near important pipework, structural supports or vital utility services.

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


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


Taking advantage of the very latest pulse technology, the GP8800 and GP8000, manufactured by industry experts Proceq, detects anything in the required wall, ground or slab area and provides expert report generation, evaluation and data analysis that is both visible 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
  • Marking the layout of embedded objects in structures required for drilling, including rebar and conduits
  • Non-destructive inspection of bridges e.g. the location of tendons
