Our Small Works Department
Our specialist small works department was formed in October 2013 and 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 small works operatives are able to instantly send survey data back to the office from anywhere in the UK ready for processing. This allows 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 30,000 surveys as a new Small Works team.
The Small Works 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). This utilises 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.
