F100 Winner for December Bruce Johnson

Congratulations to Bruce Johnson at the Facelift Newcastle Depot for sending in this shot of their 46m Bronto, working with Sunderland Council and giving Fulwell Mill some much needed maintenance work.

Bruce comments ‘The job was quite difficult to sort out from the start, at the initial survey apart from identifying the correct machine for the job we had to supply very detailed RAMS and identify exactly where the machine would need to be sited and exactly where the stabilizers would be placed as there would also be a large crane  on site and space was critical.

‘The ground was very uneven and had quite a lot of obstacles to maneuver around, however the job went ahead without any problems.’ The Site Supervisor for Sunderland council was extremely happy at the service we provided from the initial survey to the safe and professional operation of the platform’

All in all a great team effort.

Fulwell Mill is a distinctive Sunderland landmark and the only working windmill in North East England. Built in 1808 from the magnesium limestone from nearby quarries, it has been recently restored and now features a purpose-built visitor centre that offers a rare glimpse of the workings of a 19th century windmill.

Thanks to Bruce for sending in this shot. Everyone can enter the F100 competition - so if you too happen to glimpse one of our machines, why not take a picture and you could win £100!
