Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a project to deliver specialist access services at Stenigot Tower in Lincolnshire.

Stenigot Tower is a radar tower that was built in 1938 as part of the Chain Home early-warning radar network. Initially, the site’s main feature was an octet of aerial towers. These were supported by some low-lying buildings.

It is a Grade II listed structure because it is the best preserved and most complete Chain Home transmitter tower surviving in its original location in the British Isles. The site is still in use by the RAF Aerial Erector School for selection tests for possible recruits.

Engineers from PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd carried out vital repairs to the tower using rope access techniques. This is the most common method of accessing tall buildings in order to carry out specialist services, and is widely recognised as the safest and most effective. It allows engineers to easily move vertically as well as horizontally, with minimal time spent assembling and disassembling equipment.
