Since 2010, COLAS Contracting have provided a thorough Asset Maintenance Service to public and private customers.
A full suite of maintenance options is available, from individual surveys to complete maintenance packages. Utilising cutting edge technology and cloud computing we can provide live information which is accessible to the customer. This allows key information to be collected, stored, accessed and analysed by our fully trained staff or the customer, for example,
- GPS location
- Details on the size and manufacture date
- Details on the size and height
- Details on the location and surrounding features (crash barrier, footpaths, overhead services)
- Photograph of asset and surrounding location.
Common assets which can be surveyed with the system include signs, lighting poles, public transport infrastructure and public amenity assets such as park benches. Our customers include Transport Infrastructure Ireland and various Local Authorities.
Road Sign Works
COLAS Contracting also have a dedicated Road Signs division devoted to the recording, maintenance and erection of fixed assets throughout the national road network across Ireland. By using the very latest in asset recording technology described above it enables COLAS Contracting to accurately and efficiently record all fixed signs on the roadside using Trimble handheld recording Juno's.
Once recorded, the information is stored in a specially designed database utilising the most up to date cloud storage features. By using a web portal, it allows the user access to instantly view the records and the collected details of each sign. The web portal also allows for the exporting of recorded data in a user-friendly format to excel to allow for easy interrogation using filters. This allows records to be sorted in COLAS Contractingof age, pole size, sign size etc.
