Access and Transportation

Safe transportation and lifting of larger elements of often fragile ironwork relies on good preparation and an equally good working relationship with a crane and freight company. We have an excellent working relationship with Bevan Transport, who have proved themselves both reliable and flexible enough to work professionally in some challenging and unorthodox environments.

In some cases even getting safe access to the work is a challenge in and of itself, with many historical peices of ironwork having since been grown-over or situated in places that neccesitate unique or unorthadox methods to facilitate their access or extraction.

Preparation for transport both before and after restoration is an aspect of our work we take very seriously, and we will plan every aspect of a lift in advance. Depending on the fragility of a piece we can also create bespoke frames where necessary to enable safe lifting and transport of larger pieces.
