We took on the relocation of their machinery from Stoke to Warrington. We were responsible for the full move, including the machinery handling and the removal and rebuilding of a steel mezzanine structure. We had to carry out a detail survey of the electrical installation at Stoke to construct as built drawings make sure we could rewire the plant at Warrington.

Construction presents us with the opportunity to work in some of our most iconic buildings.

 

We replaced the water tanks in the Liver Building. Tanks are located in both towers, just underneath the Liver birds. We had to cut out the existing cast iron tanks and replace them with modern GRP tanks.

We were asked to survey the underfloor heating and produce a record of the installation. With no mains services available, we used a generator and mobile electric boiler to warm up the hidden pipework. A thermal imaging camera allowed us to “see” the hot pipework through the concrete slab. We could then chalk out the route on the slab and transfer this information to a CAD drawing.
