First Class GPR Ferro Scanning in Portsmouth

Ferro scan

Why risk drilling through structural supports, important pipework or utility services in your Portsmouth property? Hire Southern Drilling to undertake GPR ferro scanning. 

Working throughout Hampshire and the South East, including Portsmouth, we use the most accurate and effective Ground Penetrating Radar and Proceq scanning equipment on the market today, the GP8800 and GP8000, 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 drilling or structural changes at your Portsmouth property, it is incredibly important that you know exactly where important structural features and other pipework reinforcement are located, along with utility services. Our high quality and accurate GPR Proceq scanning equipment will tell you exactly that. Able to quickly locate and identify all kinds of objects in cured concrete, pavements, bridge decks and natural ground, our GPR scanning equipment means you can be safe in the knowledge that you are nowhere near important utility services, vital pipework or structural supports.

Regardless where you are based across Hampshire and the South East, including Portsmouth, 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 column, wall, ground or slab and where it is located, you will avoid hitting any structural supports, services, pipework or steel reinforcing. 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 GP8000 and GP8800, manufactured by industry experts Proceq, detects anything in the required slab, ground or wall area and provides expert report generation, data analysis and evaluation that is visible both in the field, including raw data view, a rotatable 3D image post scan on an iPad 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 diagrams and data for analysis by our GPR engineers in real time.

  • Drilling and coring in concrete structures
