Supporting UK clients in highly regulated sectors

Many of our clients operate in tightly regulated sectors. They are subject to legislative requirements which necessitate robust measures to ensure safe and efficient operations. The management of accurate records is crucial. It enables clients to successfully manage critical infrastructure and satisfy their legislative, business and operational obligations.

We utilise the latest data capture technologies which provide exceptional levels of accuracy. We also provide all required data back up, associated storage and administration services including document/drawing records management.

As well as location based facility surveys, our Asset Surveying and Data Capture specialists have extensive experience in surveying linear assets and distributed infrastructure.

Typical examples include gas, water and electrical distribution systems, waterways, (natural and manmade) and highways. Where natural gas pipelines are concerned, all surveys are undertaken by experienced SHEA Gas registered personnel and include real time hazard updates and the provision of detailed survey reports.

Where clients have distributed infrastructure, we combine standard surveying methodologies with GIS (Geographic Information System) based techniques. In recent years we have developed a number of innovative GIS based solutions, including:

  • A GIS based Pipeline Operational Records System to enable field pipeline technicians to access strip maps, Cathodic Protection and valve records
  • A paperless Mains Replacement Prioritisation Survey (MRPS) system based upon sub-metre GPS, GIS and custom data input software
  • A remote workforce management system designed to track and schedule site based maintenance teams in real time based upon GPS and Masternaut
  • A system developed to measure, record and publish construction progress in real time allowing the monitoring of progress versus programme and providing accurate records in order to minimise additional contractor costs
  • A highly accurate and efficient GPS data collection solution with automated post processing and reporting to meet the requirements of the clients work procedure T/PR/MAINT/5041.

In summary, our Asset Surveying and Data capture team are capable of producing accurate, detailed and complete surveys that provide our clients with accurate and up to date asset data. Some of the key features of our service offering:

  • Paperless system allowing all communication of data between field and office to be via mobile devices
  • High GPS accuracy (+/-10cm) identifies errors in existing as-laid records and increases the scope of data interpretation
  • Comprehensive automated reporting processes help to minimise back office costs
  • Alerts identifying potential risks immediately sent to the client asset manager, (at the time of discovery, not just as part of a report
  • Auto-collation of all data, including digital images.
  • Automated production of exception reports.
  • Graphical data can be supplied in a format to suit client requirements (multi-platform).
