As kids and parents are busy preparing for the back-to-school rush we’ve been helping to put the finishing touches in place for different school refurbishment and building projects over the past few weeks:

Chobham Academy, Olympic Park

This prestigious new academy in the heart of the Olympic Park Athletes’ village will provide 1800 spaces for pupils aged 3 to 19.  Glazing the atrium was no mean feat thanks to GGR’s High Operation Mounted EMU Robot (HOMER) which was mounted to a telehandler and used to manipulate the angled glass into position.

 Essa Academy, Bolton

Essa Academy will move into a brand new purpose built facility this Autumn thanks to a little helping hand from GGR’s mini cranes.  Our 3 tonne Unic  506 spider crane was hired to install steel staircases inside the academy’s new atrium.

Grimsby Institute

Grimsby Institute now has its very own recording studio thanks to GGR’s slimline PFHL89 vacuum lifter which safely lifted the 500kg acoustic glass into position along with our ‘Glassboy’ counterbalanced floor crane.
