The teams will comply with client specific requirements.
Survey teams are appropriately trained and equipped with all the necessary personal safety equipment including protective clothing, harnesses, winches, air quality/gas detection kit, breathing apparatus and communication systems etc. as suited to the relevant task.
Each survey task is evaluated initially by a qualified Health and Safety Advisor who will prepare a detailed method statement stipulating the safe working procedures with which the team will comply.
Spaflow has completed surveys and reports for the specific purpose of the evaluation of risks to health and safety.
Spaflow has many years of experience of the railway environment, its requirements and its hazards, in particular for: surveys of gravity and pumped drainage systems, water services, cabling, fuel lines, gas, track assets, water ingress problems, debris and waste accumulation in both underground and surface level stations, track drainage, depot buildings, rail yards and associated premises such as deep ventilation shafts and major sub-stations.
Their many years of experience with the London Underground Railway and similar environments has enabled Spaflow to develop particular experience in the investigation and tracing of sources of water ingress into premises, proving the source or likely source and progressing measures to solve the problem.
Spaflow can undertake liaison with Local Authorities, Statutory Bodies, Water Companies etc., as necessary, advising and dealing with legal advisors for the client and other interested parties.
Extent of Survey
The extent and detail of each survey will be agreed with the client to ensure it suits the purpose.
Surveys can be simple, to identify the nature and extent of an installation or a condition survey with recommendations carried through to a fully detailed asset inventory.
The survey method can range from a simple manual view and record through to the development of an asset “question and answer” proforma system, for use with a state of the art digital or pen based electronic data capture device.
The report format will be established to suit the clients’ requirements, ranging from simple written statements to fully detailed descriptive documents, complete with videos, photographs, asset numbering and colour CAD record drawings with IT links providing the client with an asset database for valuations and facilities management purposes.
