A UK wide infrastructure company required a detailed visual inspection of their bridge assets to ensure the structural integrity of each underwater structure. UK Diving Services Ltd provided an inspection program including an assessment of every detail of the submerged structures making sure the bridges would be safe for continued use by the general public. Many of the surrounding localised areas were considered as environmentally sensative and strict environmental controls and protocols were implemented in line with our environmental policy.
The scope of our work included developing a project plan and safety program including field inspections and detailed written reports, Additionally much of the scope included recommending maintenance and or remedial repairs, recording video and photographic images. From the conclusive evidence UKDS provided rehabilitation or replacement options with associated cost estimates and options for developing technical and executive reports summarizing the findings. Our bridge surveyors and inspection teams developed carbon friendly access routes and scheduling systems that enabled efficient completion of the work. The bridge inspections were complied inline with BD 97/12 THE ASSESSMENT OF SCOUR AND OTHER HYDRAULIC ACTIONS AT HIGHWAY STRUCTURES for bridges, culverts and water management structures.
UK Diving Services Ltd ensured state government owned infrastructure remains safe allowing the bridges to continue to be a vital link within the communities they serve.
