In the wonderful village of Muir of Ord, Arrow were delighted to be invited to support Ross-Shire Engineering on an extension to an existing development. Our door specialists visited the site and were made aware that the new extension needed to be sympathetic to the existing set-up.
After a comprehensive survey by our Scotland division, Arrow drew up a bespoke set of plans for the very large doors that complimented what was already in the existing buildings, but also adhered to all the required legislations and requirements. From our manufacturing base in Huddersfield, drawings were created and sent back to our Scotland division for submission to the client.
Measuring in at a huge 9m x7m, the weight also required a comprehensive lifting plan to be submitted to the client for approval. We also requisitioned a forklift driver, who went through an Arrow briefing, to assist on lifting and carrying the product.
One of the most challenging aspects of this job was working around a very busy site. As we weren’t the only contractors on site, we needed to work around a number of electricians as well as the plethora of cherry pickers and scissor lifts that were being utilised by those carrying out the cladding work. With the added complication of no power to the doors, we ran a three phase extension from the old building to test and power the doors.
The install took 3 days with the doors installed, wired and fully commissioned. We are also very proud to say that Arrow have also been awarded the ongoing maintenance contract for these doors.
