Providing further survey and mapping services for Bristol Water

Posted: Friday 21st September 2012

Following the success of the first aerial survey for Bristol Water on the 7km Banwell to Hutton water main project in 2011, Blom have been asked to provide further aerial survey services for a second 4km water main project near Frome, Somerset.

Nol Vincent, Senior Project Manager at Bristol Water said “This method has saved us both time and money when compared to traditional topographical survey services. There was no need to wait for Land Entry or Environmental Services to be undertaken before the survey took place. We have found it a more efficient method on longer pipeline installations where timescales are critical”

Using the latest survey cameras, Blom will collect 3cm resolution imagery of the route, from which vector mapping will be created for all ground features.

This information will prove critical for route feasibility and detailed design.
