MET Office contract for LARS
16 July 2013
LARS Communications Limited has been awarded a contract by the Met Office for the supply and installation of a spiral staircase and associated works to a radar tower near Tiverton, Devon.
The work includes the removal of an existing hooped ladder and fabrication and installation of a spiral staircase. The new 18 metre structure will be erected to the top platform of the tower and then a new companionway ladder will be installed to the platform and reach into the dome. LARS will also oversee the removal and installation of both the radar and Radome.
Work will start in late September and is expected to be completed by mid November. Managing Director, Glen Pearson, said “We are delighted to have been given this opportunity to work for the Met Office again and it is testimony to the good reputation that LARS is establishing within the industry for the quality of work we deliver.”
