Our Expertise

Because façade and high-level access equipment is integrated with the building fabric and depends upon safe operations of work, our engineers need to be more than just electro- mechanical equipment specialists. We have to have an appreciation of how the equipment is connected to the building, the hazards involved and the necessary measures for working at heights. We know how and when to engage specialist professionals and what their advice means to the project. A working knowledge of applicable standards is essential as we are often called upon to negotiate with contractors and the Competent Person alike.

This experience has been gained through advising numerous clients on a wide variety of equipment including cradles, gantries, access platforms, eye-bolts and safety line systems.
