Structural steelwork specialist McNealy Brown rented 12 AFI machines at the peak of an eight-month contract to restore the historic Greenwich Market roof in London, UK.

Access specialist rental company AFI supplied diesel, electric and bi-energy powered lifts, including several Niftylift HR12 booms, and Haulotte Compact 12DX diesel and Skyjack SJ4632 electric scissor lifts.

McNealy Brown’s work at Greenwich Market involved removing, restoring and reinstating the existing iron frame roof and installing a new glass covering to increase daylight and improve ventilation. The work is part of the redevelopment of the historic market situated in the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage site.

Ian Brooks, McNealy Brown Contracts Manager, said, “We needed machines that had good manoeuvrability whilst providing sufficient reach for us to work on the roof structure.”
