TESTING SERVICES

JGP has used rope access techniques for many years with an excellent safety record. Our structural and geotechnical engineers are IRATA trained we also employ 'confined space' trained staff. For many applications roped access techniques provide a safe, practical and cost-effective approach for difficult to access areas. The need for scaffolding is eliminated and the Engineering Geologist or Structural Engineer can reach the exact location safely and accurately.

Projects

Rope Access Engineering Inspections

Works carried out by rope access techniques include:

  • Geological and geotechnical surveys
  • Non-destructive in-situ testing
  • Sampling
  • Structural surveys and concrete condition assessments, including half cell-potential mapping of reinforced concrete
  • Structural inspections of welds; steelwork; painting and coatings; corrosion and cladding

 We can also provide confined spaces inspections.

Lynton and Lynmouth Railway

John Grimes Partnership were instructed to undertake an inspection of the slope after a landslide caused by heavy rain in December 2012 caused an obstruction to the railway line.

Following clearance and removal of the dangerous material, the slope was stabilised using soil nails and with a flexible mesh facing. The works were completed in early 2013 and the railway reopened.

Work began on the lift construction in 1887 and took less than three years to complete. The lift is now a listed monument and the buildings have been listed to Grade. The railway was opened on 7th April 1890 and has been in operation ever since – even during the two World Wars.
