Check-It are pleased to report that we’ve been asked to get involved with one of the world’s most extreme construction sites – Antarctica! We were recently approached by one of our long-term clients, BAM Nuttall Ltd. BAM asked if Check-It could provide our expertise to a massive construction project, which is a collaboration between themselves, the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), the National Environment Research Council and more. We were pleased to bring our scaffolding expertise to bear as part of the project, joining some of the world’s leading construction experts in one of the most difficult construction projects ever attempted.
The Antarctica Project
The project itself involves the modernisation of a wide number of stations and structures in Antarctica. Our scaffolding experts joined the construction project to work on areas such as Bird Island, Signy Island and the Rothera Research Station. As part of this project, the Rothera Station requires a new wharf to be constructed to facilitate the new polar research vessel, the 128m-long RRS Sir David Attenborough.
These essential upgrades will help to bring the facilities into the 21st Century. Check-It Scaffold Services is proud to continue the UK’s tradition of polar exploration and its position as a world-leader in polar science. The research carried out as part of this project is crucial to the environmental future of our planet.
