Our Task


The site was not without its challenges and was located in the heart of a busy shopping area. The building was constructed using numerous construction methods which all had to be overcome where structure was to be removed to suit the designer’s scheme. OSE worked closely with the Temporary Works Coordinator to ensure that the propping system was suitable to support the floors above.
