Collett's city delivery

Collett & Sons has delivered 13 components to the Leicester Square Hotel construction site in London, UK on behalf of structural fabrication specialists Allerton Steel. 

 

The components, which included seven 11-tonne steel props measuring 19 m x 0.5 m x 0.5 m, and six 63-tonne trusses measuring 20.5 m x 0.5 m x 3 m, were transported from Middlesbrough into the heart of the UK's capital city. 

Initial route studies and swept path analysis reports were undertaken by Collett’s consulting team, analysing several routes within the M25 London area to identify the most suitable path for the loaded vehicles to take.  

In order to travel through the narrow streets of London, Collett had to carry out detailed negotiations with the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, London boroughs, London Underground, Network Rail and Canal & River Trust on the proposed route to avoid any specific weight limits and restrictions for long vehicles. 

The props were delivered our consecutive days in January 2018, with the trusses following shortly after in mid-February over three consecutive days.
