Structures Asset Management


The TPS Structures Asset Management team is unique in the world with extensive experience in structures asset management in waterways, railways, highways and aviation environments. Based in Manchester in the United Kingdom, the team operates throughout the United Kingdom and overseas utilising skills developed internationally.

Core capabilities include asset location, asset identification, condition inspection, dimensional surveys, preparation of professional reports and database management, to ensure that assets comply with operational and safety requirements and local legislation.

Our professional team of experienced, dedicated engineers and structures examiners undertake inspections by abseiling, diving and using elevated platforms, and gain access to some of the trickiest spaces to capture data, recommend actions and develop asset condition knowledge and pro-active management /repair programmes.

We carry out visual or tactile detail examination on a wide variety of structures. Our 24/7 call-out service ensures a prompt attendance to structures which have been struck by vessels, above and below the water line and we provide diving support services to the marine and civil engineering industries throughout the world.

Our fundamental business strategy is building long-term client relationships. We provide a full range of professional consultancy services to all sectors allowing us to deliver optimum and fundable solutions which enable our clients to meet their business needs. We have considerable experience in the provision of multi disciplinary professional services.
