We received a call from Rotherham based Parkgate Astro Football centre, they had Installed six 10 metre lighting poles to provide a base for lighting units to be fitted.
We attended to provide Access to install the light units after a previous free site survey we discussed the difficulties of the site, Due to some security fencing installed to keep the site secure, after removing a panel of the fencing on one side of the site we were able to drive in & set our Nissan Cabstar Oil & Steel 14 metre truck mount.
The light units were heavy at approx. 30 kilo’s each so we installed the mounting brackets first then installed the light units one by one dropping the mains cable down internally so the electricians could complete the Electrical wiring.
After a couple of lights were installed we got in to a rhythm installing all 12 light units in 5 hours each pole required a set up & precautions had to made to secure the ground on one side of the truck mount as it was set up on grass, we could not drive across the Astro turf surface as this would have potentially caused damage.
We have been asked if we could provide a continued service looking after the lights for general maintenance & bulb changes, we have accepted gladly.
All in all another job completed safely with the customer very happy & the guy’s even managed to have their game of football while we installed the lights.
