A Visit from Ghana

Sport Relief 2014 at REIDsteel

While we do have our own successful athletes at REIDsteel, we thought we would take Sport Relief a little easy this year.

Our red themed “non-uniform” day brought out the colourful side to some of our draughtsmen’s personalities and the whole office looked tickled pink or red in this case dressed in their own hues of red.

By spending the day in the red and entering the Sport Relief official “Pick a Sweaty Celebrity” competition we raised £106. Congratulations to the winner, Lee Stevens who wisely chose Pixie Lott as the “sweatiest celebrity”.

Lee commented on the day, “Having a child of my own and […]

REIDsteel on BBC South Today

If you were watching BBC South Today yesterday, you might have spotted us!

Alistair Fee, a journalist from the BBC came to visit our five acre site to have a look at what we do and talk to our Contracts Director, Simon Boyd about the shortly-to-be released budget from Chancellor, George Osborne.

Alistair seemed somewhat fascinated by our design, fabricate, ship and erect process that creates a hive of busy workers during the day from cutting to welding to packing.  He was impressed at our near 95 year history and ability to build complex steel structures in over 140 countries.

Talking to Fabricator/Welder, Craig Beale from Workshop 6, he was able to hear about REIDsteel’s steady flow of business throughout the economic downturn due to this vast experience. It […]

Springside Industrial Units, Trinity, Jersey

springside-news01REIDsteel have a history of working in the Channel Islands and were delighted to be given the opportunity to design, fabricate and erect 2 new Industrial buildings in Trinity, Jersey.

We had been involved in the planning and pricing of the project for over 5 years before we were chosen to complete the building envelope and worked with the main contractor, F Nicolson and Sons, architects, J Design and consulting engineers, Ross Gower associates.

REIDsteel were also chosen to construct the 2 structures due to the client owning the original units adjacent to the site supplied by REIDsteel in 2000 and being impressed by the lack of repairs and maintenance needed due to the quality of the building provided.

Working with the client’s team enabled us to design the steel structure […]

At Home in Antigua and Barbuda

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 […]

Something a Little Different

REIDsteel have designed and supplied many steel churches and cathedrals in Africa and the Caribbean. In Tanzania, a REIDsteel church was blessed by our local reverend from Christchurch Priory and in Antigua we constructed the church which their Labour Party Leader was recently wed in.

Having built many steel structures in Mauritius, which you can read about here, REIDsteel were only too pleased to supply the Societe du Saintesprite et Ducoeur de Marie (Society of the Holy Spirit and The Sacred Heart Of Mary) a new feature of their shrine dedicated to Père Laval.

Just a short distance from Port Louis, at Sainte Croix stands the church and subsequent shrine and museum of the Mauritanian saint, Père Laval.  He […]
