Aviation Project – Confidential

Technics has undertaken topographical and PAS 128 underground utility surveys, including multi-channel array ground probing radar, for a confidential client in the aviation industry.

Involved in the project since June 2018, Technics provided detailed data and analysis to identify utilities before works take place to demolish a temporary Flight Connection Centre, used while a new one was being rebuilt.

The surveys were undertaken to follow the client’s service protection process and mitigate the risk of damaging services while works got underway. The survey was required to prevent any potential damage to services that could significantly impact the operation of the airport – avoiding hitting a cable or fuel main for example which could result in aircraft stand or taxiway closures.

PAS 128 is a specification for underground utility detection, verification and location, ensuring that the survey a client chooses is being undertaken to the highest professional specification.

It’s a specification that Technics was heavily involved in previously, supporting the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineers, Transport for London and Highways England, in which they advised on how standardisation should and could be progressed.
