Structural Maintenance

In November 2011 NG Rigging were awarded a maintenance project on the high profile Arqiva owned Emley Moor transmission tower near Huddersfield, at 330m it is the UKs tallest freestanding structure and is also a Grade II listed building.

The remedial works consisted of:

Structural fabric repairs to multiple areas on the tower, from 0-276m, with local damage / spalling of the structures concrete and corrosion to exposed reinforcement bars.

Removal and replacement of all handrail systems on 4 no. cantilevered platforms 27-46m.

Repair of lead flashing at 274m.

This was an interesting but challenging project with several changes made to the work scope as it progressed, it was completed to a high standard, on budget and within the required time constraints.
