Solutions to challenges
Actavo was required to paint towers in Warrington that were in back gardens and close to roads, which provided challenges. The team put covers on cars, fences, garden furniture, etc. to protect them from paint. The works were completed on time and in budget, with the client receiving very positive feedback from the householders.
Actavo painted YH route for Scottish Power. Much of the route ran through central Edinburgh – close to houses and main roads. The Actavo team worked from early in the morning on weekends when traffic was light. The contract was completed with no damage or complaints.
Actavo painted ZN route for Scottish Power. This was a hugely challenging project, much of it over very difficult terrain – around 20 towers over marshland with no roads. Some of the area was governed by Scottish Natural Heritage and other sections were in Muirshiel Regional Park. Actavo hired specialist all-terrain vehicles to get the job done. The project was completed on time and in budget.
