Following many months of pre-qualification and negotiations a major condition survey and diagnostic testing project has been secured in the United Arab Emirates.
A total of 17 structures will be surveyed and reported on ranging from marine structures such as sea inlet chambers to desalination plants.
Concorr staff will initially attend site this month for pre-investigation checks and inspections with technical teams following on to inspect all 17 structures.
This is one of a number of exciting projects the company is currently involved with ranging from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, Doha and Ras Raffan in Qatar.
A number of surveys to famous listed bridges over the Thames have recently been secured, the first of which has already been carried out.
This month saw our dive and inspection teams carrying out a special survey and scour inspection to the grade II listed Kingston Bridge over the river Thames in London.
An underwater scour survey was carried out to each abutment and pier as well as a condition survey to above water areas. Due to changes in commercial dive regulations recently, we had a total of 8 operatives on site.
Kingston bridge is 116 metres in length and carries an estimated 50,000 vehicles across each day. The original section of the bridge dates back to 1828 although there have been 2 additional sections added since.
This is just one of the huge number of bridges, tunnels and culverts surveyed each year by our Civil Engineering Consultancy Division making us a leading UK and worldwide provider of bridge inspections.
