Fire brigade to the rescue

Fire brigade to the rescue

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue used the tower crane over our Limborough Road site in Wantage last week to practice the rescue of a stranded worker.

The ‘worker’ was in fact a volunteer fireman who pretended to collapse whilst working on the jib. The rescuers were the retained firemen from Wantage and they received guidance from a specialist team based in Oxford.

The contractor, Kingerlee, and the building owner, Kings Park Leisure, were both happy to cooperate with the fire brigade.

The scheme is a multi-storey mixed use development providing ground floor parking and retail space with offices and fourteen two-bedroom apartments on the floors above.

We are acting as Employer’s Agent; the contract is due for completion in April 2020 and it is currently on programme and on budget.
