Case Studies

Steel Profiling Services that Can be Relied on Every Time

One of our regular clients here at Jamestown is LMH Engineering, one of the market leaders in mechanical and structural engineering solutions. Currently, they are aimed at growth in the data centre and pharmaceutical work. Since 1966, LMH Engineering has been providing its clients with a full design, manufacture and installation service on products which include:

Walsh Draughting Services – Case Study

A Partnership Based on High Professional Standards It is inevitable that a steel fabricator such as Jamestown, with their industry-wide reputation for high standards and wide-ranging capabilities, will tend to find themselves working with a draughting company that is similarly well known in the construction sector for its highly accurate and technically-advanced drawing services. It is therefore unsurprising that Walsh Draughting Services and Jamestown have often worked together on challenging and complex projects.

Major Equipment International Ltd. – Picture-Perfect Mowing

A company which makes machines to cut grass with the precision needed for a perfect lawn can appreciate the accuracy of Jamestown’s plasma cutting techniques. The Company Founded in 1976, Major Equipment Intl. Ltd.  Is a family firm based in Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo, which also has offices in the UK and the Netherlands.  Employing 95 people, the company currently exports all over the world, and envisions a future including expansion in the European Union.

Collaboration on a Difficult Site – Cuningar Loop Bridge, Glasgow

When sections of the Cuningar Loop pedestrian bridge were lifted into place over a meander in the river Clyde in east Glasgow, the bridge was being put together for the second time. To ensure a perfect fit, a trial erection of the hundred metre bridge had already taken place at the Jamestown Steel site. Collaboration on a Difficult Site Specialist surveyors were brought in to produce a three-dimensional scan of the bridge once the trial erection was completed; this was so that the scan could be checked against the dimensions of the pier and bearings already built by Robertson Civil Engineering, the contractors who were also responsible for the bridge abutments and access embankments. Progress at the site was further complicated by old mine workings and a trunk sewer, as well as electrical and water supplies running through the abutments.

Precision Components at the Former Olympic Village

Perfect Matching of Components Jamestown faced difficult challenges on this project. The construction techniques employed by the project called for a very high degree of accuracy in the making of the large steel brackets. The Steel components, that were fabricated off-site, needed to match perfectly once delivered. The degree of precision required was much greater than normally required; the tolerances were as small as +/-0.25 millimetres.
