Harsco Infrastructure, the specialist global provider of construction and industrial maintenance solutions, is delighted to welcome visitors to stand E60 at the UK Concrete Show 2013, where it will be showcasing the benefits generated by its unique ‘Insight onsite™’ philosophy.
Harsco has almost 100 years of history to its credit in the construction sector, where it provides an extensive range of formwork, shoring and access solutions for walls, slabs, tunnelling and bridges. These are combined with the company’s high-productivity edge-protection systems and perimeter climbing screens, and used for a wide range of residential, commercial, industrial and civil engineering projects.
Supporting this extensive product portfolio with an innovative, full-service approach allows Harsco to provide integrated formwork, shoring and access solutions that are specifically tailored to meet individual requirements. Lee Davidson, Sales Director for Harsco Infrastructure’s Formwork business, explains: “Customers rely on us to work with them and understand their specific requirements, so we need to have a high level of understanding of their sector. No matter whether it’s a civils, infrastructure, energy or utility project we can demonstrate a good track record of success where we’ve been able to support the customer at every stage of the process.
“Even on the most complex, large-scale formwork and shoring project we have the knowledge, expertise and products that are required. That enables us to create a bespoke solution and handle the whole process right from system design and erection through to project completion and dismantling, and as a result we have developed some very long-standing relationships with clients.”
This approach stems from Harsco’s ‘Insight onsite.™’ philosophy, which focuses on working closely with clients to develop appropriate work packages, as well as transferring knowledge and expertise from one location to the next. In order to ensure health and safety processes are rigorous, all work is completed to a high standard and customers are kept fully informed on site, so that safe working practices are maintained while work is carried out.
Safety is a priority for any industry as Davidson explains: “There are obvious dangers involved with the types of projects we are asked to support. However, safety is always right at the top of our list of priorities and is the major consideration at every stage, right from initial planning through to final completion. Harsco works in 32 different countries, so we can identify best-practice safety procedures from around the world and provide them to clients in all our locations.”
In addition to its construction industry activities, Harsco Infrastructure also provides encapsulation, insulation, cladding, painting, coating, blasting and cleaning services for industrial facility maintenance projects. It is part of the global Harsco Corporation, a NYSE listed company which provides industrial solutions to major companies in the infrastructure, steel and metals, construction, railway and energy sectors.
