Alan Newman, REIDsteel’s Safety Advisor

REIDsteel has been designing and building structures around the world for almost 100 years but what sort of a company is it and who are the people that make it happen?

To find out I’ve been given unique access behind-the-scenes and I plan to share what I discover so you too can get an insight into what makes this company tick.

Before I do anything else I have to have a tour of the site and a health and safety briefing from Alan Newman, REID’s Safety Advisor. Alan has been with Reid for 24 years, having started in the maintenance department.

With so much heavy steel and cutting, lifting and finishing equipment on site, safety has always been a priority for the company. However, in recent years the image of health and safety has suffered and BBC One’s The Wright Way, a sitcom written by comedian Ben Elton, hasn’t done anything to improve it.

Alan is pretty sanguine about this. He knows people might raise their eyes to heaven when he has to pick them up on a point […]

Hornsey Water Treatment Works (WTW)

January 17th, 2013|Categories: Waste Management|

During 2000 Thames Water established the aquifer supplying the plant sand filters treating water had become blocked and were running slow.

It was established that this was being caused by algal blooms, which were ultimately causing production to be impacted.

The Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) process was selected as the best treatment process and to complement this a 50Ml/d pre-treatment works was also constructed which would allow for the eventual removal of the slow sand filters.

The treatment works comprised of a dissolved air flotation and rapid gravity filter process. Treatment processes include:

–          Raw Water Abstraction

–          Coagulant and pH Correction (Acid) Dosing

–          Coagulation/Flocculation/DAF

–          pH Correction (Caustic Dosing)

–          Rapid Gravity Filtration

–          GAC

–          Disinfection

–          High Lift Pumping

The plant is able to deal with any algal blooms more effectively and also reduce ongoing operation and maintenance costs.

The four REIDsteel buildings which provide cover to these processes had to be of high Architectural value given that the site is located across the valley from Alexandra Palace.  Planning Permission was therefore a very long, drawn out, affair which meant that the plant became operational in 2008.

July 27th, 2012|Categories: Resilient Structures|Tags: , , , , , |

We have recently had a high demand for our Anti Vehicle attack gates and security barriers at a ‘major sporting event’.

The twin bollard gates system offers openings of up to 12m, and the Dragon’s Teeth system is suitable for perimeter protection of commercial operations that have vulnerable boundaries such as airports, or energy/utility sectors.

and is also an ideal reusable solution for major event organisers as it surface mounted, cost effective and easy to deploy.

The Mudeford Lifeboat Funday, Sunday 22nd July 2012

July 24th, 2012|Categories: REIDmarine, REIDsteel Staff|Tags: , , |

 

On the sunniest day of the summer so far, the REIDsteel Team took to the water for the annual Mudeford Lifeboat Funday Raft Race.

After a very convincing victory in their heat, the final proved a much tougher test for the lads, with a neck and neck struggle for supremacy between REIDsteel and the New Milton Roundtable Team.

Finally, with what was surely an immense amount of Steve Redgrave like grit and determination, the REIDsteel team broke the oppositions resistance and crossed the line ahead to win the race and retain their winners title from last year.

The lads were then awarded another accolade, as for the second year running they were the team who had raised the most money for the cause.

Harshly (we think) they were not awarded any prizes for their outfits!

Lido Mar, Montenegro

May 8th, 2012|Categories: Commercial Buildings|Tags: , , |

Concept-sketch1Steel is a fantastic building material, but sometimes steel frame buildings don’t have to look like steel frame buildings at all.

An example is the Lido Mar in Montenegro. The architectural design concept was by Studio RHE Architecture & Design and the structural steelwork design was by REIDsteel.

As you can see from these photos the final results are stunning.

Aircraft Hangar for Eznis Airways, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

February 21st, 2012|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , |

Eznis-news01In early 2011 we were successful in being awarded a contract to design and supply an Aircraft Hangar for Eznis Airways.

This hangar was required to house their fleet comprising of four Saab 340B aircraft and two Avro RJ85 aircraft, which serve their expanding domestic flights service operating from the Chinggis Khaan International Airport in Ulaanbaatar.

The project required the design and fabrication of a 50m clear span Hangar together with a two storey office, workshop and stores facility on either side of the Hangar and across the rear elevation.

Eznis-news02In addition, we supplied the Eznis Company Logo which sits proudly on both gable peaks of the Hangar and we also produced a separate pair of sliding doors which can be opened to allow the nose of an Avro RJ85 aircraft to be worked on in inside the Hangar whilst the rest of the aircraft remains outside.

A set of inflatable fabric seals mounted on the main Hangar doors and matched to the shape of the fuselage ensure that the weather stays outside.

Mongolia: Fuselage Sealing Doors

February 14th, 2012|Categories: Aircraft Hangars & Doors|Tags: , , |

Construction of the aircraft maintenance hangar in Mongolia continues, and the fuselage sealing doors are now in place.

Designed by REIDsteel to fit an Avro RJ85. The fabric ring inflates to create a tight seal around the aircraft body so that maintenance can be carried out on the aircraft without the need for the whole plane to be inside the hangar.

When the seal is not in use, the smaller, outer doors slide shut and seal the hangar.

Small outer doors seal the hangar

The project was commisioned by Eznis Airways LLC, and is located in the Capital Ulaanbaatar.

Mongolia is a huge landlocked country, covering an area of over 1.5 million square kilometres. It is bordered by China on the south, east & west sides and by Russia to the north.
