Steelwork Installation

Location:Leicestershire

Sector:Telecommunications

LARS completed the installation of strengthening steelwork on the 80 metre lattice tower at the BT Copt Oak Radio Station in Leicestershire.

As well as being an operational site, the structure at Copt Oak is also used as a radio rigging training tower by BT, so the work had to be completed within a window of opportunity in when the tower was not being used for training purposes.

The strengthening steelwork was installed on 6 panels and involved the replacement of main diagonal members located between 44 metres and 70 metres. Leg plating was also installed at the 39 metre to 44 metre level.
