Project Description

The “Mast job” was a coatings project calling for 9 technicians for 3 months that morphed into an 8 month expanded access mega project. RAC Group supplied access, rigging and technicians to coat 36 fifty meter tall masts and support these beams while connecting arches were installed.

“Once we got started everyone wanted a piece of our capability,” says Operations Manager Chris Aziz. We expanded our available personal, working schedule, rigging locations and job scope to meet the needs of this iconic structure. RAC was into the arena completing work before scaffolds’ could get a price quote done.
