The Wirral Dock Bridge is a steel truss opening bridge which was constructed around 1931. It forms a vital link in the Wirral road network, facilitating access to the port of Liverpool.

Wates site engineers outlined to FLG Services that there were two void spaces across the floor, one either side of the main opening used for loading and unloading, which meant that no heavy equipment could be placed in those areas.

Development of Innovative New Lifting Solutions

The FLG Service Centre in Glasgow assisted Amey Highways to help solve a problem associated with lifting heavy kerbs from the back of small trucks. Previously, kerbs were lifted with a small crane and manually handled into position, but Amey Highways were seeking an alternative which would both enhance Health and Safety for operatives and improve productivity.

Leadenhall Building ‘The Cheesegrater’

The system was required to be moved on a regular basis and this needed to be quick, easy and safe. The system also needed to be incredibly robust as the site was working seven days a week, 24 hours a day and an "out of service" condition would prove incredibly expensive.

Polden Student Accommodation Development

VINCI Construction UK is in the process of building two new student accommodation blocks on the University of Bath’s main Claverton Down campus on the edge of the city.
