Modular staircase and walkway at Airbus, Filton

Our ability to provide a speedy response and service was put to the test when we were approached by the Bristol office of Galliford Try.

Ten staircase sections and associated walkways were required at their Airbus UK site in Filton, Bristol; and all wanted in order to meet a very tight deadline. Several weeks of intense design, development, and engineering detail ultimately resulted in approval for materials to be purchased ready for manufacture. Utilising our LEAN production processes and pre-planning meant that walkway sections were manufactured, hot dipped galvanized, and pre-assembled for delivery to site in a 21 day period and stair modules in an amazing 15 day period!

All of the work was pre-assembled and test lifted at our "buildoffsite" premises which resulted in everything being fitted on site in two weeks. Managing Director, Jason Rigby said;

"This was one of the most challenging contracts, in terms of delivery, that we have ever undertaken. Our buildoffsite facility really was paramount in acheiving what we had promised - without it there would have been many more site deliveries to arrange and a much longer site installation period."
