CASE STUDIES

Client

BBH / Metsa Wood


Project

High Rope Course Inspection


Type

Recreational – High Rope Courses


Location

UK Wide

The Brief

The client required Freedom to undertake wood pole inspections for over 200 high rope course sites across the UK, to determine how successful a new pole pre-treatment process had been. On completion, Freedom had to prepare a site specific plan and carry out remediation works.

The Approach

The four-man field inspection team was controlled by Freedom’s wood pole preservative expert, Dr Derek Sinclair. Using Freedom’s advanced Pole-Stat software, poles were examined for every form of deterioration without the need to excavate. Freedom compiled detailed pole condition and classification reports and removed core samples for analysis by the client. Automatically generated reports were emailed to the client at the end of each day.

The Delivery

With Freedom’s highly effective and time-saving Pole-Stat software, the client received the results for poles for each site the day following examination by the field team. Where sites were still operational, members of the public remained safe at all times.
