Premier Technical Services Group PLC’s (PTSG) Access and Safety division has recently carried out work at Millennium Point in Birmingham’s Knowledge Quarter to allow on-site maintenance teams to work in a safer environment.
The company’s fall arrest teams supplied and installed free-standing guardrails and ladders, and designed a bespoke plan deck system which included all main supporting steelwork. This equipment will ensure that the site is fully compliant for work at height, and can be accessed safely and securely by maintenance and facilities management teams.
Millennium Point sits in the heart of Birmingham’s Knowledge Quarter, and opened in 2001 as the largest millennium project in England outside London. It is home to Birmingham’s award-winning science museum, several faculties of Birmingham City University and a number of Birmingham Metropolitan College labs.
The Group’s access and safety division is an industry leader for installing bespoke access systems in short timescales and challenging environments, and so it was a natural choice to take on this contract.
