About the project

Craddys were appointed by BAM to develop the temporary works strategy for transportation, storage and re-erection of cast iron columns and wrought iron beams to the 19th century, Grade II listed gasholder structure. The cast iron columns required support to rotate from vertical to horizontal and did not have sufficient capacity to stand as a cantilever.  Craddys developed the design for lifting and erection frames to temporarily support the columns during installation. Craddys were also responsible for the structural assessment of the guide frame structure and design of all repairs and refurbishment works, working closely with Historic England to develop a sympathetic repair and refurbishment strategy to secure the structures future.
