It isn’t very often that the surveyors at Storm only have to travel 20 minutes to their site and what a bonus when it is a National Trust property too! The lake at Charlecote Park was in need of a survey to assess the levels of silt that have accumulated over the years. Our survey team used one of our 10ft aluminium semi-flat bottomed boats to navigate through the very shallow water and probe the bed with a survey pole to measure the levels. Hand-picked data like this is time consuming but is often the most reliable as the levels are physically “felt” through the pole on the lake bed so you can be sure that you have found the bottom and not a weed bed.
July became a month of completing large and complex survey projects for clients across the UK.
Storm’s collaboration with JBA Consulting took the team to Scotland to run site trials for the CivTech Accelerator challenge.
Storm were excited to bring the entire company together in mid-December for the first strategic day in two years.
