Construction and Engineering O&Ms

AST Authors has a proud history of working for multi-nationals as sub-contractors on some of the UK's largest and most prestigious construction and engineering projects. Including major railway upgrades and new infrastructure projects, power plants, shopping centres and hotels.

O&M manuals in this field are usually large and complex. Yet is it essential they are easy to navigate by busy engineers who need to complete a task quickly and at the first attempt.

Engineers need to know exactly what they will find when they arrive at site, what tools they will require and any access restrictions.

Our manuals are in the field being used by engineers everyday, as a vital tool to helping them complete their work.

We can bring this experience to projects of any size, so if you have a construction or engineering project requiring documentation please contact us for a quotation.

Handover O&Ms

AST Authors support Principal Contractors with their handover documentation with authors based either on site or at our offices in Letchworth.
This way the Principal Contractor can involve AST Authors at the early stages of their project to begin structuring and developing templates, identifying the correct system SMEs, gathering and reviewing available source material and starting the template population process. Leaving them to focus on design and build, other key works and deliverables.
AST Authors have also managed the O&M requirements of other multiple sub-contractors on behalf of the Principal Contractor to ensure a more streamlined O&M process, all in the right template, with the right content, in the right format and delivered at the right time.

Tender partners for the O&M element on large projects

For large projects to be successful it requires multiple teams of skilled specialists to come together and apply their skills. AST Authors have a history of bringing the technical publication expertise to large projects. We are experienced in the ways that large projects need to operate, working with multiple stakeholders and with teams where time is precious and pressure constant.

If you are tendering for a large project and need a technical authoring team to take care of the handover documentation then please contact us. We can assess the Scope of Work and provide guidance and an estimate to assist you in your tender process.
