Keltbray Group announces extension of its lifting servicesPublished 10/10 at 13:03
Keltbray first established its lifting capability in 2010 to support Keltbray Group’s many functions, specifically its demolition services.
In line with the growth of the company’s services, lifting services has continued to expand its capability. This means that the team of experienced lifting engineers now have access to over €1.12m worth of specialist lifting equipment, enabling them from their dedicated East London base in Silvertown to support major developments across the capital.
The company has already completed work for a handful of external clients, including maintenance and restoration specialists De-Pest. This contract involved removal of a historic bridge at St. Katharine Docks in order that the bridge could be refurbished off site. Due to access constraints, Keltbray carried out the lifting operations using a barge mounted crane, delivering the project ahead of time and on budget.
Keltbray has developed lifting expertise over a number of years by carrying out complex projects for its internal businesses at major developments. These include projects at Earls Court, Battersea Power Station and London Bridge. These are now provided as a stand-alone service, or as an integrated part of other Keltbray services.
“As a specialist contractor, we employ a direct delivery model; using our own people and plant. We also have access to our own engineering consultancy, Wentworth House Partnership, for design expertise. This enables us to manage lifting projects with a higher risk profile from start to finish, and give our clients pace of mind that we’ve got their back, using solid plans and equipment tested and inspected by our accredited people. As a result we are well placed to provide a one stop shop to plan the works, as well as source the equipment and implement the lifting operations,” explained Keltbray Group’s lifting operations manager, who is spearheading the new service.
