Concorr Heritage Division have secured another Norman Castle to survey. This will be the 2nd in the past 6 months having completed Rochester Castle at the end of 2017 and bidding on 2 others in the UK at present.
The survey is a stone by stone survey, therefore very comprehensive and complicated.
By using the latest 3D scanning techniques Rivet Models will be produced from which highly accurate CAD drawings will be produced showing amazing detail.
Our roped access teams will access all parts of the structure to inspect 100% of the areas as well as making safe loose/dangerous elements.
The report will be used to formulate options for the castles future to make it more accessible to the public and explore the possibility of other users.
This month we welcome three new members to our technician teams.
Seen here on a recent survey of the Norman Castle, Canterbury are (from left to right) Bradley Spurr, Chris Bennett and Connor White.
Bradley has a background in Ndt and diagnosis having worked for a testing company across the UK on a range of structures.
Chris is an IRATA trained roped access technician and has experience of bridge inspections.
Connor is an IRATA trained roped access technician with on and offshore experience in inspection and testing as well as Helipad and access netting systems.

Congratulations to Operations Director Daniel Nugent, who together with a tough team took part in Tough Mudder last Saturday in Henley.
Other team members were Danielle Walker, Tom Alexander, Paul Whitfield, Katy Jones, Hayley Smith, Jodie Waddington and Giula Waddington.
The team put their all into the challenge and every team member finished.
They took on the 12mile run with ease and beat each and every assault coarse challenge that was thrown at them – although the ice skips were not a favourite !!!
The team were raising funds for Pilgrims Hospice after Jodie and Giula lost their dad Ian at Christmas. Their story can be read on the teams justgiving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Jodie-Waddington2?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&utm_content=Jodie-Waddington2&utm_campaign=pfp-share they have by far exceeded their fundraising target and anyone wishing to donate can still do so.
Hats off to an amazing group of people!!

Managing Director, Michael Nugent has this week been in Rome at meetings and presentations as part of his involvement with The United Nations UNESCO Technical Team.
This is the latest of a series of meetings of the Technical Committee whose remit is to evaluate the effects of both natural and conflict disasters on buildings (hospitals etc) and infrastructure in predominantly third World Countries, but now evolving to other regions such as the Middle East and Europe.
A visit was also made to the remote regions, 90 miles from Rome to view the ongoing rebuild of the regions affected by the 2016 earthquake.
Some 2,000 people were displaced at the time of the earthquake and over 290 sadly lost their lives.
Italy’s earthquake institute, INGV, a world leader in seismic events said the focus of the earthquake was at Accumoli and Amatrice.
Much was learned from the visit and discussions, which will assist in the groups work over the coming 3 years, whose ultimate and simple goal is to evaluate, educate and saves lives in the future.
