DPS were engaged to undertake a structural analysis of a gantry to allow for additional loads from attachment of electrical cables. Works included a desktop study of the gantry using SpaceGass to analyse the gantry structure and footing and prepare a report, footing design of two transition pole structures and design of an extension bracket to connect a post insulator to a power pole in order to achieve adequate clearance.
Site inspections were undertaken and a condition assessment of the structure was conducted. A condition assessment report was prepared, providing recommendation for remedial works to the structure. DPS are to provide full documentation including reports, design calculations and drawings.
