Rochester's GPR Ferro Scanning Specialists

Ferro scan

Avoid potentially drilling through your important utility services, structural supports or pipework at your Rochester premises by having first class GPR ferro scanning undertaken by the professionals at Southern Drilling.  

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

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

Regardless where you are based across Kent and the South East, including Rochester, 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 ground, column, slab or wall and where it is located, you will avoid hitting any services, structural supports, steel reinforcing or pipework. This high quality and reliable prevention method is absolutely essential in ensuring that costs are kept to an absolute minimum and the health and safety of all involved is prioritised.


Utilising pulse technology, the GP8000, manufactured by industry experts Proceq, detects anything in the required slab, wall or ground area and provides expert data analysis, evaluation and report generation that is visible in the field, including raw data view, a 3D augmented reality 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 diagrams and data 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
