A Visit from Ghana

April 10th, 2014|Categories: Commercial Buildings|Tags: , , |

REIDsteel were privileged to welcome representatives from the Government of Ghana Health Select Committee to tour our five acre site and to view the design and fabrication of the latest hospital for which we are providing the design, fabrication and shipping of the steel frame and roof cladding.

REIDsteel are working as part of the team established by NMSI. This consortium specialises in systems, design and engineering, logistics, procurement and project management. They welcomed the Ghanaian delegation to Britain via London before travelling to Poole and then on to REIDsteel. Working as part of the NMSI team, REIDsteel are designing, fabricating and shipping several district hospitals throughout Ghana for the Ghanaian ministry of health under a $175million contract.

Mike Chappell, REIDsteel’s Sales Manager introduced our visitors to REIDsteel’s company history dating back to 1919 and talked about the vast range of technical expertise that we are able to bring to projects. He then went on to show a time-lapse video we recorded of the parts for the building being packed to be shipped to Ghana’s Tema Port.

At Home in Antigua and Barbuda

March 11th, 2014|Categories: Commercial Buildings|Tags: , |

REIDsteel have been working in the Caribbean for many years and have gained a reputation for designing buildings that go up quickly and stay stable during turbulent weather.

Back in 1995, we worked with Bencorp to build their new corporate headquarters.

When it was erected, the people in St Johns were amazed by the speed with which the building was erected: “a big hole one week, a magnificent building the next week” was how they described the changing landscape.

Measuring 88’ x 64’ x 8’, the Benjamin building (so named after Bencorp’s chain of Benjies businesses) has been through many a face lift and refurbishment.

When Bencorp ceased trading, the APUA (Antigua Public Utilities Authority) bought the building and renovated it to include new glass curtain walling.

With it looking so good it has been photographed for the front cover of the Antigua and Barbuda telephone directory; A statement that identifies it as a signifier of the island and its people.

TAF and REIDsteel

November 3rd, 2013|Categories: Commercial Buildings|Tags: , , |

Mustapha Njie has worked with REIDsteel for over 20 years. He has used REIDsteel services to build housing and even a hotel in The Gambia.

He has further expanded to Senegal and Mali. His company TAF Holdings are recognised within the West African sub region for their high quality builds that are executed quickly and accurately.

Recently, TAF has been involved with a joint venture with the River State Government in Nigeria.

This project is collectively known as RIVTAF. Nigeria has the second largest economy in Africa with a GDP of $268.708billion (World Bank 2012), which has created a huge surge in the demand for affordable housing.

The RIVTAF partnership offers potential buyers a new home and the finance deal to secure it. TAF says that public private partnerships like this are vital in delivering housing across Africa.

TAF has more than 30 years’ experience in the construction industry and works hard to pass on knowledge via an on-site training programme.

TAF’s projects mean an expansion of local jobs for a wide variety of workers, including engineers, electricians, builders and construction labourers.

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.
