McAndrew Martin Ltd and Encompass Surveys Ltd Conquer Ascension Island

In an exciting collaboration, McAndrew Martin Ltd (International Division) and Encompass Surveys Ltd recently joined forces on Ascension Islands for a week-long venture. Our mission was to conduct extensive CCTV Drainage Surveys and Mapping, an undertaking that would put their skills and teamwork to the test.

Despite facing various challenges, the dedicated team of Max Marshall MEng GMICE, McAndrew Martin Ltd along with David Sweeney and Billy Wadsworth, of Encompass Surveys, rose to the occasion, successfully surveying over 65 manholes. This triumph of teamwork not only showcased their professional excellence but also underscored the immense potential for growth and enrichment that comes with international work opportunities.

Beyond the confines of their professional responsibilities, the team seized the opportunity to embrace the unique experiences Ascension Islands had to offer. The adventure extended beyond the worksite, providing them with a taste of the island’s rich culture and natural wonders.

Amidst their hard work, the team found time for a light-hearted excursion to the infamous “world’s second worst golf course.” A great reminder that even in the most demanding of tasks, working overseas can provide some incredible experiences. They also took time to tour around the islands museum and hike along many of the trails, including the Green Mountain, which offers breathtaking 360 degree views of the island
