REIDsteel in Malta with Lufthansa Technik

By Sales Engineer, Michael Harvey

REIDSteel provided the existing Hangar for Lufthansa Technik Malta (LTM) back in 2008.

A new Maintenance, Refurbishment and Overhaul (MRO) facility was essential to enable LTM to grow their business into a world class company and their original hangar was already restricting their activities for the overhauling of aircraft, from the large number of different fleet operators requiring their services.

The 2008 project consisted of two ‘wide-body’ hangars, together with one smaller narrow body hangar (information relating to this project can be found here).  However, by 2013 the aircraft servicing market had evolved and there was a greater demand from the wide-bodied sector than previously forecast.

LTM approached the team at REIDsteel with […]

Terrain Services Ltd and REIDsteel

Terrain Services Ltd is a medium sized construction company incorporated in September 1997. Although initially based in Kampala, Uganda, from 2005 the majority of their work has been located in South Sudan.

REIDsteel has worked with Terrain since March 2008. Together, working with The Louis Berger Group we embarked on the USAID funded Sudan Infrastructure Services Project (SISP) to build 8 bridges across the 192km stretch of Juba-Nimule Road. These bridges ranged from 12 to 50m long.

During Sudan’s civil war, much of the infrastructure of the recently formed country of South Sudan was destroyed.

The construction of these bridges along the only paved highway in South Sudan enables development of the country. They allow transportation and trade […]

Our first bridge with JTEC in Mauritius

By Design Engineer, Peter Mrozinski

REIDsteel’s erection supervisor Jimmy Sloane has just returned from Mauritius where he successfully supervised JTEC’s installation of a REIDsteel bridge. The bridge replaced an old steel railway bridge that had been corroding since 1902 and had fallen into a bad state of repair.

We didn’t see a dodo bird, but we did notice that L’Escalier is twinned with Spelthorne in Surrey!

This new bridge at Sourdine was built to eliminate a narrow and dangerous roadway into the gulley, used heavily by large bulky sugar harvest vehicles and bagasse transport, as well as by the general public. The bridge was funded in part by the sugar company and in part by the state.

Construction Manager of Building and Civil Engineering Co. Ltd, Jean-Pierre de Rosnay, […]

REIDsteel in Nepal


Home to the highest point on earth, Mount Everest and the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, Nepal is an ancient and beautiful country.

Today, its people are looking to the future – The UK is helping by providing aid from the Department for International Development (DFID) and working with IMC Worldwide to support the Nepalese people in gaining reliable infrastructure.

The work is coordinated by Tim Stiff, of ICMW, acting as Team Leader for the Rural Access Programme, RAP2, and reporting back to the British government.

The only way for the country to advance and eliminate rural poverty is to build roads and bridges. Nepal’s total road network and density are low and only 43% of the population has access to all-weather […]
