The Network Consultation service has been succesfully carried out in the South West of the UK.
The task was to review and carrying out feasibility studies for overhead pole networks within the area, in order to highlight the best possible spine route for fibre infrastructure.
The main aim set out when undertaking this scheme, was to reduce cost where possible. While connecting as many customers and businesses as possible. All presented on a GIS mapping solution to allow for clarity of the proposal.
We have been carrying out nationwide cabinet positioning surveys for over 8 years. In order for us to do this we work closely with our clients, the Highways Authority and Planning Authority. This allows us to provide the best possible deliverable. When we survey a location, we take into consideration sight lines, private residencies, any traffic management concerns and any land registry issues.
We include any considerations that we feel may cause concern when building the cabinet such as utility congestion, war memorials, etc.
Our surveys contain full location information of the proposed location, supplemented by photograph and OS site sketches.
We provide as-built surveys at varying points during the construction process to monitor the construction as it is occurring. We can provide valuable information including the level of completion that the project has reached and if the construction is following the original design.
Our clients can use this invaluable information to extend deadlines if needed, and when violations are found it can be used in remediation procedures.
