Project: St James Square - Northampton
Works: Utility Mapping
Description Mantra Services were commissioned to undertake a utility survey for a very busy area St James area of Northampton. The survey area included covering the junction of the A4500 and A428, both very heavily trafficked roads into the town. The survey areas was approximately 27,000m2 The survey required the deployment of effective pedestrian and traffic management and some GPR data was collected using our bespoke GPR vehicle mounted system. Due to the very heavily trafficked roads some of the works were planned for the Easter weekend and some nights to ensure the safe and successful delivery of the project
Project: Fenchurch Street, City of London
Works: Utility Mapping Survey
Description Mantra Services were commissioned to undertake a PAS 128 survey in the vicinity of Fenchurch Street for the proposed demolition of a city block and subsequent £400million development of the project colloquially known as 'Gotham City'. After our initial reconnaissance we decided this project would require a PAS128:2014 survey level of M4P to successfully map the extremely complex underground network of pipes and cables. Due to nature of the location, we were unable to proceed with any work until permission had been granted for traffic management by the City of London. This required intense negotiation and effective communication to arrange dates and times which would create minimal disruption to this densely populated area. It was decided much of the work would need to be undertaken out of hours at nights or weekends. The post processing procedure involved using 3D GPR post processing to provide the most accurate information available for this high profile project.

orks: Utility Mapping and 3D GPR Surveys
Description Mantra Services were commissioned to conduct a PAS 128 utility detection survey along side a 3D GPR survey, as our clients had concerns there may be basements and other obstructions underground. Using the latest technology and post processing available we were able to advise our clients of, not only a complex underground network of utility assets, but we were able to determine the location of reinforced buried structures which could have had a major impact on the outcome of the scheme if left unknown. Our client had split the project into two phases, therefore it was vital we maintained effective communication channels with our client in order to deliver the survey to their requirements.
