Sidcup's GPR Ferro Scanning Specialists!

Ferro scan

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

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

Before undertaking any drilling or structural changes, it is absolutely imperative 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, natural ground, bridge decks and pavements, meaning you can be safe in the knowledge that you are nowhere near utility services, vital pipework or important structural supports.

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


Put simply, if you know exactly what is in the ground, wall, slab or column and where it is, you avoid hitting any services, steel reinforcing, pipework and structural supports. This prevention method is crucial in ensuring 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 report generation, evaluation and data analysis that is visible in the field, including raw data view, a rotatable 3D image post scan on an iPad or a 3D augmented reality view. This also includes a fully generated report that is sent to the office. Downloaded information can 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
