Walkers Crisps, Leicester

4500m2 of external wall needed accessing and cleaning with a pressure washer.  The majority could be accessed by Cherry Picker, where this was not possible rope access techniques were used.  8 days were required to clean all surfaces.

Fascade Lighting Birmingham New Street

CAS have now started the installation of the exterior lighting.  The 1st 150 lights are now installed.  All works have been carried out at night to avoid working above other contractors.

British Mountain Guides

We were approached late last year and asked if we could deliver a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) day for the British Mountain Guides Association.  A day of discussing the installation & testing of bolts, followed by a practical session in an old disused quarry seemd to fit the bill.  Experience of the Guides attending varied from some having placed hundreds of bolts to some never having placed any.

With thanks to Bendrigg Lodge for the use of their facilities for the day

Busbar Exchange

With a response time of 24 hours.  We had a team on site to deal with multiple busbar exchanges in a turbine in southern Scotland.  An issue with the supporting of the busbars had resulted in 5 sections requiring removing from a height of 75m.  We removed all 5 section and reinstated with 5 new sections.  14 Hours work saw the turbine back on-line.
