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 […]
REIDsteel are proud to have recently supplied three Water treatment plants to Libyan Contractor Zulal Water Technology.
We supplied the steel frames, composite cladding, glazing, doors, roof extraction vents and a 5-tonne overhead crane to each building.
The installation of all REIDsteel supplied components were assisted by experienced supervisor Rowland Phillips.
The Gialo plant was completed in only nine months, on a full turnkey basis. The plant is producing excellent quality of water and should provide the people at Gialo field with a reliable supply for many years to come.
Working with Civils Contracting Limited, this extension to the existing Hangar 12 at Bournemouth Airport has a clear span of 100m, is 12m deep and 22m high to the eaves. The Main Contractor’s work started on this project in the summer of 2013 and we commenced assembly of the main truss at the beginning of October 2013.
Being a very unusual and local job, it was decided to install a timelapse camera in order to record progress, managed between bouts of the windiest weather experienced since 1987.
This camera takes a photo every 10 seconds and these can then be played back in sequence and roll like a film. The effect is that we can see the action of many days taking place at a super quick […]

Chris Batty (quality assurance assistant), Tony Rendall (draughtsman), John Sinkinson (company accountant) and Matthew Way (project engineer) recently entered this year’s local Christmas 10k run. This family fun event has taken place annually for over a decade. It allows runners from over Dorset and Hampshire of all abilities to take a run along the River Avon, through the roads of Burton.
The course takes runners through a part of Burton that perhaps locals don’t visit often. Despite this, it is really quite picturesque with large hedgerows marking the way. The farmland roads make for a good, flat course; perfect for a personal best.
However, the best part is receiving a congratulatory Christmas pudding upon crossing the finish, so everyone’s a winner! The day is a lovely festive start […]
The only difference between a hurricane, a cyclone, and a typhoon is the location where the storm occurs.
They all happen in the same way:
Warm water heats the air and it starts to rise, and begins to spiral. The warm air will be very moist and will start to condense. As the warm air spiral goes up into colder air, it becomes even warmer and lighter, so it rises and spirals faster, sucking in more warm moist air from the surrounding sea. This enormous heat-engine, powered by the heat in the sea, is a storm formation.
When a building stands in the path of the wind, the windward wall tends to block the air, and the air pressure increases. This force can cave in walls, smash doors or columns […]
