Asset Inspection and Technical Audit Services

Outdoor Media Advertising Asset Inspection Service

Our outdoor asset inspection and installation, condition and reporting service revolves around the outdoor media sector’?s desire to self-regulate. Safety of an outdoor media asset installation is paramount and with more complex locations being built in roadside, rail, underground, retail and airport locations that maximise revenue opportunities, the provision of an effective independent design and installation audit programme is crucial. Our programmes are designed to respond to our client’s specific requirements and utilising technology can integrate key report data directly into the client?’s? own asset register.

Taking a full cycle approach to asset inspection and auditing can assist clients in demonstrating a commitment to safety in critical installation locations. A rolling asset inspection programme identifies records and effectively reports an asset’?s condition and defects?,? allowing work crews to fix issues and maintain the asset?’?s income earning ability through its extended lifetime – which is clearly defined. This avoids many of the extreme weather related issues that have impacted outdoor media advertisers in recent times. The reporting is bespoke but clearly demonstrates the Outdoor Media Compan?y’?s commitment to their partners, adding credibility.
