Lead by our experienced RF Fixing project manager, the team included a dedicated site supervisor, health and safety manager, QA manager, slingers, banksmen and fixers. All our operatives are highly skilled and proficient in the use of cranes, trained to IPAF standard and used a combination of skills and equipment to complete the project, including:

  • Spider crane – to decant and prep the elements

  • Pallet stackers
