It was not just another job, it was an M&S job for a firm of Nottinghamshire galvanizers.
The team at Worksop Galvanizing Ltd was called in to help with the development of a large multi-storey car park built by James Killelea and Co for one of Marks and Spencer stores.
A total of 1,200 tonnes of metal was involved in the project, of which Worksop galvanized 620 tonnes which amounted to 1,900 pieces of steelwork.
Paul Robinson, Commercial Manager at Worksop Galvanizing, explained: “Hot dip galvanizing is the most 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 10,000 tonnes of steel – and we very much look forward to our next project together.”
Bob Allan, Contracts Director, at Rossendale-based firm James Killelea, 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. Co-ordination and planning of deliveries was a major challenge, with restricted access to contend with.”
