By employing experienced engineers, skilled in specialist access techniques, including rope access, confined space access and pontoon access, we are able to carry out works in potentially hazardous locations efficiently, safely and professionally.

We operate a partnership with a number of significant structure owning bodies and management agencies in rail, highway, manufacturing, airports and marine installations where we provide a service that runs from establishing the needs to finalising the reports.

We work both in the UK and Overseas (having experience in Africa, the Far and Middle East).
