Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is providing specialist steeplejack services at Stonebridge Mills in Leeds. This former industrial site has been transformed into a high-quality new housing estate.
Steeplejacks from PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd have transformed the old water tower (pictured) into a main site feature for the development project.
PTSG’s specialists provided a bespoke designed cantilever scaffold to the top three meters of the tower to encapsulate the cast iron header tank, which was in a state of severe disrepair.
The tank was cleaned internally and externally and the cast iron section was repaired and painted to enhance its appearance. A new roof was then designed and installed to the tower termination.
External stonework apertures were also built up using matching stones to upgrade the elevations to ensure a uniform appearance. The tower now stands as a refurbished landmark of the mill and gives a traditional feel to the refurbished estate.
PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd is providing ongoing refurbishment of the 40-metre brick mill chimney, which will stand alongside the tower within the new estate.
PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd is a market leader in the high-level maintenance industry, servicing clients worldwide. Its steeplejacks carry out work to a wide range of structures such as chimney stacks, cooling towers, flare stacks and other high and unconventional structures.
