  • Special Project Management / Co-ordination - Many firms provide Project Management Services but DMA excel in those special situations where added client empathy is required, Roll Outs or situations where perhaps the contractual links between involved parties are fluid or not particularly clear or strong.
  • Condition surveys - Depending on the application, these can range from none intrusive walk around visual surveys to video surveys to in depth examinations co-ordinating and collating the findings of specialist technicians
  • Water Hygiene Risk Assessments - Even after several high profile tragic events of many years, its surprising that we still find many situations where basic requirements have not been addressed.
