Case Study Dismantling of tower

Following a consolidation of the Orange network, a 17.5 metre tower in Twickenham, London, was no longer needed.

However, because the site was inaccessible by heavy plant machinery, the client sought the specialist services of ARCC to remove the tower.

What ARCC did

It was decided that we would have to deploy our custom made ‘Derrick Pole’ to assist in the disassembly of this fairly robust structure.

  • Carried out a detailed risk assessment within four days.
  • Wrote detailed method statements for carrying out the job.
  • Deployed a custom-made ‘Derrick Pole’ to assist in the tower’s disassembly.
  • Completed the overall project within seven working days.

The impact

A redundant tower was swiftly removed, and Orange was thereby able to complete rationalisation of its network. This project is an example of ARCC’s pro-active and re-active attitude to projects.
