After 5 years of continued success working on the BT Openreach contract, on behalf of Morrison Utility Services, the department was upgraded so that it had the capability to take on similar large volume surveys.
Formed in October 2013, our specialist small works department carry out proofing surveys of BT cabinet locations to aid in the rollout of high speed broadband across the country.
Using some of the most innovative data transfer technology available, our on-site operatives are able to instantly send survey data back to the office from anywhere in the UK ready for processing, allowing for increased productivity and a large reduction in our carbon footprint.
Prior to the re-branding of the department the team had carried out over 8,000 surveys for Morrison Utility Services, this figure is now in excess of 11,000 surveys.
The department has now evolved to take on several other contracts and after many successful trials in 2014 the team are now carrying out electrical link box surveys for UK Power Networks (UKPN), utilizing various survey techniques to detect and verify the location of the link boxes with accurate GPS positioning, maintaining an up to date database of UKPN’s assets. To date approximately 420 link box surveys have been carried out.
