Project Description

Overview

A masonry culvert running over an embankment approx. 90m long & only 600mm dia required pointing and a new invert to improve its structural integrity.

Challenge

Due to the nature of the works and poor access / egress works within the culvert were undertaken by our trained and highly skilled confined space team. A dam was structurally designed by our nominated engineer and installed. The culvert was over pumped whilst works were carried out.

 

Result

Our confined space team successfully completed all works on time and within budget despite poor access to the site and limited room to works within the culvert.
