Our erection department is fully equipped with our own fleet of telescopic mobile cranes, mobile elevated working platforms (MEWPs) and articulated vehicles. Unlike the majority of our competitors, our erection teams are our employees. Only our men, with our plant, on your site; that’s our way.
All of our plant and machinery is maintained and serviced beyond that which is legally required to exemplary standards by our own service and maintenance engineers. We also have our very own fully equipped mobile service vehicles available to quickly respond to any mechanical problems which may arise.
Our erection teams are fully certified in line with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). We maintain a 100% CSCS card level for all site operatives. All site managers hold current Construction Site Manager Safety certification and are also IOSH and NEBOSH qualified; all supervisors hold Construction Site Supervisor Safety certificates.
All erection work is serviced via MEWPs and all operatives of which are IPAF certified. MEWP and crane operators are also CPCS certified. Safety nets are only erected by FASET qualified safety net riggers. CPCS Slinger/Signaller qualifications are held for that operation.
The health and safety of our and your workforce is paramount to us. Our continual training and certification programmes ensure we have the right skills for the job. Our site personnel receive CITB safety awareness and trained site personnel refresher courses on a regular basis. Our safety record over the last four decades is excellent.
We understand that you need access to the site for following trades as soon as possible. For that reason we adopt a phased hand-over of steelwork; usually on a two-weekly basis. This allows following trades to progress with their operations and enables you to condense the construction programme.
