A Nice Little Insurance Job
A car had hit the garage/workshop and we put in a nice little retention scheme.

A Nice BIG Insurance Job
Derbyshire stone roof to these plush Peak District apartments had only been on 5 years and started to fall off with the potential of killing some of its multi millionarre residents...strange how they rushed this one through....I dont suppose its because if anything happened to the residents they had enough dosh to hire the best legal eagles in the land eh?? A similar sheme in the centre of Sheffield took an age to start!!

We do this at cost basically for the advertising potential and the enquiries/jobs it generates.

I think its best to click on the insert image button and paste the location of the image.

Had to hang two lifts over the slate roof of St Pancras International. Used mainly 750mm X beams.

The iconic statue of Christ with outstretched arms that overlooks Rio de Janeiro is getting a $4 million renovation.


Heavy rains have eroded portions of the face and hands of the statue. It has also been damaged by lightning strikes over the years.
