Avalon worked for me on the detailed inspection of HDC bridges. This work involved the visual inspection of specific structural elements of both steel and concrete bridges in accordance with the requirements set out in the Transit Bridge Inspection and Maintenance Manual.

The work involved extensive use of Industrial Rope Access Techniques. This inspection work was carried out in a professional and safe manner, and the reports I received were of a high standard.

The report adds great value to the job in two main areas:

  1. Rockfall hazard assessment and suggestions for hazard management.
  2. Detailed record (written, drawings and photographs) of the work carried out.

The ability to report and interpret the work in this way is a clear advantage which Avalon offer over some of the other companies tendering on the same work.

“Avalon have investigated proof-loaded and certified existing Fall Arrest and Industrial Rope Access systems for Opus' clients. The work the Avalon team have carried out for me has been of a consistently high standard and I would recommend their services to others and their being granted IQP status for the types of systems being concerned.”
