Our team was recently contacted by a building contractor who needed assistance with a large Commercial to Residential conversion build they were undertaking in Crawley. The client was adding another floor onto a 3 storey office block and converting it into apartments. The crane requirement was to lift up approximately 18ton of timber products onto the top floor and spread it evenly throughout in order to keep the weight loading down as specified by the engineer.

You know we love a Shepherd's Hut, and this was one of our favourites to date. It was a lovely colour, beautifully fitted out, headed into the garden of a stunning home for some wonderfully nice, and extremely happy new owners. Not sure we've ever put that many adverbs into one sentence. But every one of them is true of this installation.

2020 has been a pretty turbulent year for the maritime transport industry.  You'd think that there may well have been a boost to shipping as planes were grounded, PPE and Covid related goods joined the list of products being shipped around the globe, and global e-commerce boomed. In part, this is true, but the industry still continues to suffer (like almost every other) due to Covid, and Global maritime trade will plunge by 4.1% in 2020 due to the unprecedented disruption caused by COVID-19, UNCTAD
