ECEX has installed an elevated steel support gantry and associated screening louvres at Tate Modern’s award-winning 2016 extension, the Blavatnik Building, in London.

The gantry supports three new 3,600kg dry coolers installed by ECEX customer SPIE Building Services.
ECEX faced the challenge of fitting the gantry into a congested plant compound. The platform also had to be erected high enough for the heat rejected by the coolers to discharge to atmosphere over the high walls of the compound which contained the chillers.

Managing director John Grenville said: “Access is a critical contributory factor to the safety of building services engineers installing and maintaining plant. My company employs a team of skilled metalwork fabricators operating from its workshop in Newbury who can survey and design bespoke metalwork solutions, whatever the issue. We offer free site assessments and quotations tailored to customers’ needs. Whether they require an access ladder or roof edge guard-railings, ECEX experts can survey, quote, manufacture, install, modify or refurbish access safety equipment as required.”
