Ingleton Wood were appointed by an investor client to lead the refurbishment of two historic static dockside cranes, including the removal of asbestos from the cabs, localised structural steelwork repairs and full redecoration.
The two DD2 model dockside cranes were manufactured by ‘Stothert and Pitt’ and date from circa 1960. Ingleton Wood were appointed to specify the repairs and redecoration of the structures, obtain competitive tenders and administer the building contract. The project required extensive investigation by our Building Surveying and Structural Engineering teams to establish elements of disrepair across the structure and how the historic cranes could best be protected for the future.
Multiple challenges were faced to deliver the project including minimising disruption in a densely populated area and undertaking detailed initial investigations at high-level. We also acted as Principal Designer under the CDM Regulations which included the review of contractor’s working methodology and logistics plan. Ingleton Wood were able to successfully deliver the project, helping the Client to minimise their ongoing maintenance liability and best protect an important asset.
