For new client INDRA the Ryebridge team removed the old tower and installed a new Surface Movement Radar tower and antenna. Ryebridge completed all works including foundations and piling, tower erection, all in co-ordination with NATS and ATC.
The existing surface movement radar (SMR) tower had to be replaced and as such a new tower had to be constructed to facilitate this and the current health and safety regulations around working at height. Ryebridge were tasked with designing and building the foundations for the tower and to project manage the construction of the new tower and the installation of the new SMR. On completion we were then tasked with the removal of the old tower and radar. This was all done adjacent to London Luton Airport’s Taxiway Alpha, the main artery of the airport.
The project was completed on time, on budget and without any major disruption.
