Our 70th year in business has been fantastic, with turnover for both the steeplejack/specialist access division and lightning protection division far exceeding original expectation.
Showcased below are just a handful of notable projects which highlight the variety of specialist work that we have successfully completed in 2019.
Concrete Chimney Demolition – St Helens, UK
Successful completion of the demolition of a 91.5m high reinforced concrete chimney in St Helens, UK.
The demolition of this chimney was carried out in a piecemeal fashion down 20m above ground level using our innovative sliding band scaffold platform which enables the scaffolding to be lowered as the demolition proceeds. The bottom 20m of the chimney was demolished using a high reach machine.
Our team of steeplejacks worked tirelessly throughout this contract and completed the project ahead of schedule and to the complete satisfaction of the client who had this to say on completion of the contract;
Firstly please thank the guys from me again, they did a remarkable job without any issues/incidents and well within timescales, they are a credit to your team!
Secondly thanks to you, Carl and Nick for the management of the project.”
