West Malling's GPR Ferro Scanning Specialists

Ferro scan

The most effective way of avoiding drilling through important structural supports, pipework or utility services is having GPR ferro scanning undertaken by the experienced professionals at Southern Drilling. 

Working throughout Kent and the South East, including West Malling, we utilise market leading Ground Penetrating Radar scanning equipment, the GP8000, to make sure that you know every hidden detail and aspect of the structure before any drilling, coring or design work takes place.

Before carrying out any drilling or structural changes at your Kent or West Malling property, it is absolutely imperative that you know exactly where important structural features and other pipework reinforcement is located, in addition to any utility services. Our high quality and accurate GPR Proceq scanning equipment will tell you exactly that. Able to quickly and accurately locate and identify all kinds of objects in pavements, bridge decks, concrete and natural ground, our GPR scanning equipment means you can be safe in the knowledge that you are nowhere near vital utility services, important pipework or structural supports.

Regardless where you are based across West Malling, Kent and the South East, 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.


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


Taking advantage of the very best pulse technology, the GP8000, manufactured by industry experts Proceq, detects anything in the required slab, wall or ground area and provides superb data evaluation, report generation and analysis that is visible in the field, including a rotatable 3D image post scan on an iPad, a 3D augmented reality view or a raw data 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.
