Manholes provide useful direct access to drains below. Unfortunately, in some cases manhole inspections are difficult and almost impossible without the right equipment and training.
When it comes to manhole inspections health and safety is paramount. We recognise that working in confined spaces present a variety of hazards, both physical and psychological, since conditions below the surface can rapidly change. We ensure our employees are comfortable, confident and focused when working in tight chambers. Risk assessments and method statements are a big part of our commitment to health and safety in these areas.
All manhole surveys are carried out in accordance with the WRC Model Contract Document for Manhole Location Surveys and Production of Record Maps (STC25) and can be presented in many different formats ranging from digital reports, including site photographs and sketches to scanned copy of a site sheet ready to be directly imported to modelling software so our clients can see any deterioration and current condition of their manhole chambers on their networks.
We use GPS equipment to record Easting, Northing and Cover Level of our surveyed manholes.
We can carry out these manhole surveys anywhere in the UK for Water Companies, Highway Authorities and the Environment Agency.
