We were recently requested to assist in the moving into place of some balcony frames to a newly built property in South Norwood, London. This leafy suburb is more commonly known for the home of Football team Crystal Palace as well as being a mere 10 miles from the centre of London. This job was a Contract Lift, meaning that all risk assessments and method statements were completed and in place by our team prior to the lift commencing.

Unlike many, Greg and one of our HIABs did manage to make their way down to the rolling hills of Glastonbury in Somerset this June. Not for the world-famous festival of course, but for a client who tasked us with the collection, transport, delivery and positioning of a chemical dosing tank. Memories of Glastonbury 2020 are not quite what most people expected when they secured their tickets last year with the 2020 pandemic having played havoc with many an event.
