A team of up to 45 engineers, CAD technicians and support personnel have produced or updated over 50,000 drawings all in line with the National Grid’s exacting standards.

Examples include:

  • MRPS – Development of a paperless system to support the survey around 14,500km of gas pipework each year.
  • Pipeline Surveying System – a highly accurate, efficient, and automated reporting tool.
  • NOMAD – Remote Workforce Management System.
  • RECON – Pipeline Construction Progress Reporting
  • MULTIPIX – interactive photographic site data.

The challenge

Quality always plays a pivotal part of our drawing records management service, to this end we have achieved compliance with a range of industry recognised standards including OHSAS 18001, ISO 9001, ISO14001 as well as specific supply chain standards such as UVDB verify, showing our commitment to providing a service of consistent quality.

This is an ongoing role whereby we continuously provide drawing management services.

The client has access to a large and experienced team of engineers, CAD technicians and support personnel who maintain and update vital drawing records, thus helping the client to ensure that ongoing operations and maintenance functions are able to reference up to date system information.
