Land and site surveys at Hendre-ddu

You may require a land survey at any stage of your project to help you.

Challenge

We carried out scour and geomorphology assessments for Conwy County Borough Council at Hendre-ddu.

This involved a channel survey along 3km of the river to inform the design of a replacement 7.2m span bridge. The existing bridge foundations had been subject to several phases of scour as the upstream watercourse meanders and flows against the bridge foundations.

Solution

  • River channel cross section survey
  • Production of survey drawings and supply of ISIS model data.

Benefit

  • Provided a hydraulic model to give a better understanding of scour risk
  • Allowed them to take into account all of the impacts at the design stage of the project.

  • I had recently seen someone surveying the land around my home and I had wondered what they do. It’s very interesting you were able to figure out the size of the bridge needed just by surveying the surrounding land. If I were building something I would want to hire a professional to survey the land so that I would be able to know how much space everything is going to take up.
