Case Studies

Each inspection requires a degree of engineering and has to be undertaken in the safest and quickest possible way in order to minimise disruption and reduce costs.

We strive to offer our clients the most effective answer for their challenge from a simple hire through to a bespoke inspection solution.

Over the years we have delivered these solutions on challenging structures such as the Forth Rail Bridge, the BT Tower, World's largest Single skin LPG tanks, as well as a number of major offshore platforms. Each of these inspections posed us a challenge, however using our in-house design capabilities we were able to custom design a solution that overcame the challenge. Our solutions are designed to get results.
