The construction sector is a major contributor to the UK economy, incorporating a wide range of services and technologies. In 2014 the sector contributed £103 billion in economic output, which accounted for 6.5% of the total and represented over 2.6 million jobs. As growth returns to the industry, it is predicted that construction companies across the UK will require an additional 224,000 workers over the next five years. Major infrastructure and commercial projects are expected to drive the demand, and the forecast indicates a sustained period of growth that is set to make a positive impact on the wider economy.
As dedicated construction specialists, we support the future of the industry by undertaking complex projects with full adherence to health and safety standards. Health and safety is of paramount importance within the construction industry, and we have full knowledge and awareness of the value of temporary works. These projects involve the stabilisation of structures and buildings during refurbishment, such as facade retention, temporary bridge support and structural propping within renovation.
Refurbishment and renovation involves the alteration of existing buildings and structures of all ages. The biggest challenge facing these kinds of projects is stabilising the rest of the structure whilst the work is carried out. Our role is to provide the solutions that enable efficient renovation and refurbishment and ensure a safe working environment. It is crucial to prevent dangerous and costly structural collapses, and this is exactly what we do.
Propping is an essential part of structural alterations and provides the support that buildings need while essential structural elements are removed or altered. Our propping systems are tailored and designed for the individual needs of each project, offering a bespoke solution. Projects can involve the transportation of heavy loads within the structure’s internal frame and propping is designed to ensure a safe and simple process, protecting the building, workers, and other inhabitants of the property.
Renovation can be one of the most hazardous types of construction work, particularly if the structural strength of the property will be compromised. This is why temporary works such as propping systems play such a vital role, and why we are committed to providing the best bespoke systems for each and every project we work on.
