- Removal of vegetation from a steep embankment to facilitate an ecological habitat survey.
- Employed rope access techniques to safely and efficiently clear the vegetation.
- Designed and implemented an access and egress platform and a landing area post-clearance.
- Ensured minimal environmental disturbance during the clearance process.
During the building project at Ocker Hill, an ecological habitat survey was required. To ensure accurate observation and assessment, vegetation on a steep embankment needed to be cleared. This clearance would provide an unobstructed view of the embankment, allowing researchers to study the ecology and assess any potential impact of the building project.
The client faced significant safety concerns due to the steepness of the embankment and the dense vegetation. The risk of slipping and falling into the river below was high, and the dense vegetation further complicated the task by obstructing footing and balance.
RSSI, known for its expertise in rope access services, was brought on board. Their skilled team used rope access techniques to safely and efficiently clear the vegetation. In collaboration with the client, RSSI also developed an access and egress platform and a landing area for the client’s ongoing building project.
The project was completed seamlessly, on time, and according to the programme. The client could proceed with their project without any hindrance, and the area’s ecological integrity was maintained. The project was executed seamlessly, with the teams completing the work scope on time and according to the planned programme, highlighting the collaboration’s value and efficiency.
