Here we have hand-picked a selection of ALPS projects, when conventional access was not practical or feasible.
To install the manifolds required by the main cable dehumidifying system, a pair of ALPS steel truss frame access platforms were assembled and installed and moved as required from location to location.
Engineered access solutions were provided both above and below deck, allowing construction and finishing works to be undertaken throughout the 210m high structure.
Roped access technicians carried out high-level rigging works. The platforms were used to access and assess the condition of the main cable of the bridge.
ALPS engineered, supplied and installed a bespoke suspended access solution to enable preparation and painting works to be carried out to the underside of the upper walkways.
ALPS supplied two suspended platforms to enable inspection and repairs of the runway beams. A team of industrial abseilers assisted with the works.
ALPS carried out phase two of the tactile inspection and load testing of the runway beams under the bridge using six mobile runway beam access platforms.
Royal Sovereign Lighthouse
The Royal Sovereign Lighthouse is situated almost 5 miles off the coast of Eastbourne. ALPS designed and supplied a modular lifting davit and rigging to remove old ladders and install replacement ladders and fenders.
'Temenos' Art Installation
Located at Middlesbrough Docks, 'Temenos' is 110m in length and almost 50m high. ALPS supplied a team of roped access operatives working with specialist suspended access and portable lifting and pulling equipment.
To assist with external façade installation on site, ALPS engineered an access solution to all areas of the façade of this 32 floor landmark building, which measures almost 162m high.
