Integrated Delivery for Dorset County Council

Posted 07.12.2016

Tripod Crest has been an integrated delivery partner for Dorset County Council through their Dorset Highway Operation, working collaboratively with the Council’s Highways and Engineering staff and Hanson Contracting to plan and deliver a range of maintenance schemes across the Dorset region.

We primarily provide planing services under the current contract; with up to two machines engaged in a programme of schemes across the fiscal year. We input into the planning of an annual Defect Cluster Programme prepared by the council through early contractor involvement to visit the sites and select the most appropriate planing machine to suit the roadspace and depth and milling.

How Tripod Crest Added Value:

Tripod Crest has worked continuously with Dorset County Council since 2008 over successive contracts. Over this time, we have developed valuable knowledge of the highways asset and traffic flow behaviour; which enables our staff to propose planing solutions that cause the least disruption and by planing to the correct depth in a safe and productive manner.

We also conduct joint ‘Walk and Build’ visits with the Dorset CC Site Agent. In the current year, we will deliver 34 schemes for Dorset CC covering patching and inlay resurfacing schemes.
