We will be awarding a Framework Contract in collaboration with Transport Scotland (TS) for Geotechnical Works within Scotland.
The Framework scope seeks to cover all geotechnical works necessary to make sites safer and to install temporary and permanent geotechnical infrastructure, depending on requirements. This would include, but is not restricted to:
— Application of a range of rock and soil slope reinforcement techniques;
— Rock removal and scaling;
— Provision of specific plant (e.g. mobile barriers off-road vehicles and non-road engines);
— Removal of vegetation and arboreal control;
— Installation of protection measures against rock and debris falls such as draped mesh, baseline, temporary or permanent catch fencing (and removal if required);
— Provision of traffic management;
— Chainsaw work as required;
— Supply accurate as built details and specifications and GPS coordinates of all installed infrastructure.
The Framework will facilitate a combination of planned works, and unplanned emergency works (which would be required at very short notice); all of which will be carried out by suitably qualified and competent staff.
Emergency Call-Off:
If there is a requirement for an emergency response to a geotechnical incident, FES or TS will seek to award the call-off contract to the contractor they feel can offer the quickest response to the emergency. It is likely, for genuine emergencies, we could need contractors to mobilise and be on-site within 2 hours.
