Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has been instructed to provide specialist access services at a large residential building in East London that is undergoing a major refurbishment.
Balfron Tower is a 26-storey residential building in Poplar, Tower Hamlets, East London. Built in a Brutalist style, it forms part of the Brownfield Estate, an area of social housing between Chrisp Street Market and the A12 northern approach to the Blackwall Tunnel.
Plans are now underway to comprehensively and sensitively restore Balfron Tower. Undoubtedly innovative upon inception, the original design unity will be reflected in the work of the designers overseeing the project today; serving as the guardians to one of London’s most iconic post-war buildings.
PTSG’s rope access technicians have been instructed to install specialist access netting to avoid any debris falling from the balconies while the refurbishment is underway.
PTSG’s operatives are IRATA-trained rope access specialists and use this technique to quickly, easily and safely access all areas of buildings to do their work. They also use mobile elevating work platforms and scaffolding where necessary to complete a range of high-level repairs, cleaning and installations.
