Our ENS Works teams have completed a new digital signs project for APN Outdoor, over each side of the motorway at Mt Gravatt, Brisbane.  Project was full scope of steel fabrication, digital sign assembling and fixing to steelwork, attach new support steel and then of course install and commision the signs.   Before that though we had to remove the old backlit billboard signs from site and all that had to be done round crucial client dates for advertising campaign runs.  ENS Works certainly are "Building Things Better"

Without doubt wireless is also the fastest and most economical method to to deliver broadband to people in developing countries, providing the backbone for healthcare, commerce, entrepreneurship but above all education.

Great effort by our team and contractors last night - tonight's Southbound has just been cancelled by very wet weather.  Next week then...

What a shame - this is actually the oldest suspension bridge in the UK and it was the first modern one, beating Menai by a few years.  We need to keep these old engineering marvels as they are as important as any historical house or castle.
Forget demands for a referendum or calls for independence: the ties linking Scotland to England are literally crumbling.

It costs a lot of money to shut a carriageway on a motorway - money well spend when you see how busy the other side of the motorway is....

While looking for something else entirely I came across this wee video - takes me right back to about every weekend when the UK East Coast Main Line was electrified - so many overbridges were just too low for the power wires and catenary so they had to go just like this one - not often you got 36 Hrs though - more like several weekends of nightshifts and temporary bridges (bailey type from Mabey Bridge) to keep the roads open. Years of nightshifts every weekend - didn't do wonders for my social life but probably saved my liver...

Introduction

"Building Things Better" is my personal vision – to me it’s not about being cheapest it’s about offering exceptional value. From project conception through whole of life, correctly engineered, correctly delivered, high quality solutions that are developed from years of valued experiences – that’s what I am about.

Benjamin Franklin famously quoted  “the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten”  - I like and stand by that quote – if you want a cheap and nasty solution we are not for you however if you do want high quality and the very best value achievable then speak to us. Many studies have proven that this higher quality approach actually works out more economical in the long term with lower lifecycle costs.

I have been involved in the construction of wireless network roll-outs large and small and this experience has given me a tremendous insight to the deploying networks and in particular those problems that rural area constructions present – from power solutions through to the actual logistics of getting materials and construction plant on site. I have been involved in developing many innovative solutions in these areas. 

Outdoor signage, power line installations and single site wind turbines are all areas that have similar conditions where my particular construction knowledge also delivers great project value for customers.

In addition I have an extensive civil engineering construction background which includes large scale highway bridges and structures projects, such as motorway projects, rail projects (multiple bridge raising / replacement projects and temporary overbridge solutions for electrification ), temporary works and temporary bridging solutions, high quality concrete structures (dry- docks etc)

Knowledgeable and experienced in the area of military engineering (Royal Engineers) - both combat engineering and specialist technical areas as well. 


Used to working at very senior levels with a proven record for business and P and L management.
