Calling all sports fans! Surveying the Rugby World Cup 2015 venues

I was absolutely delighted to be instructed as part of a national specialist team of small companies to compile Schedules of Condition for the stadia being used as part of the Rugby World Cup 2015.

Not only is it a prestigious instruction, but as a lifelong Magpies fan, surveying St James’ Park in Newcastle will be the icing on the cake! Neil and Tom, as Leicester fans, are particularly looking forward to the Leicester City Stadium.

Seeing the Millennium Stadium up close and personal was quite something. The survey took us down the tunnel and onto the pitch, through the dressing rooms and through all the public and hospitality areas used during the tournament.

The Schedules were completed using state-of-the-art technology: Kykloud on iPads. This enables real-time data entry, so you can photograph and record condition and defect data room by room, area by area. Once you’ve completed the survey, the data from each surveyor is uploaded to the cloud and then a report generated to the client’s exact requirements.

It’s a great example of how surveying technology, both hardware and software, can be used to produce an efficient and speedy job. Once the data has been uploaded, the report is generated automatically – zero admin time in the office afterwards.

Here’s some images of the day – photos of St James’ Park and Leicester coming soon.
