Worksop Galvanizing (part of Wedge Group Galvanizing), working on behalf of steelwork contractor James Killelea, has completed a job to galvanize 620t of steelwork for a multi-storey Marks & Spencer car park.
As well as the galvanized steelwork, the project in Longbridge required an overall tonnage of 1,200t, which amounted to 1,900 pieces of steel.
Worksop Galvanizing Commercial Manager Paul Robinson said: “Hot dip galvanizing is an environmentally-friendly finishing process to prevent corrosion, and can give decades of preservation against the elements without needing to be maintained.
“This is just one of a number of significant jobs we have undertaken in partnership with James Killelea over the past three years, which has seen our team galvanize more than 10,000t of steel – and we very much look forward to our next project together.”
James Killelea Contracts Director Bob Allan, added: “Galvanizing was chosen in some areas because of its proven durability and longevity against rust and corrosion, and the overall project took 20 weeks to complete.
As on many such schemes, coordination and planning of deliveries was a major challenge, with restricted access to contend with.”
