A busy year!


IMG_1941It has been a while since we posted any news quite simply because we have been run off our feet.Having out grown our previous space we moved offices in March, we could not believe how we ever fitted the people and the stuff into the old place!  For those that know us better we have not escaped being plagued by animals – now it is the local geese knocking on the door at lunch time.We have a nice car park though and plenty of space for our visitors, and enough space to really provide an even better quality of service to all.

We are proud of  achieving bronze level in piloting of the BE FAIR frame work for CITB, which is being launched in June this year.

Then of course there is the good level of construction activity around which has kept us busy on all fronts.

The launch of Citizen Manchester the art project celebrating the regeneration of our city’s town hall and library, held at the art gallery in Manchester , gave a  great  chance and rare opportunity to raise a couple of glasses with both my construction colleagues and friends  who support the gallery. Thank you to Laing O’Rourke, Manchester City Council and the Friends of the gallery for a great evening and the chance to meet interesting new people. And what great photos celebrating the life of these buildings!  A wonderful creation by Dan Dubowitz and Alan Ward 

Then I got to see the  new library again for a training as a media expert.  A  challenging but  extremely worth while experience.

In the midst  of this -us normal stay at homes- Janette and I have  both been traveling , with only one day hand over. Between us we have almost covered the globe with USA and India.


Looking forward to a busy  month ahead with the launch event for BE FAIR,  BSIF standards meetings etc all falling close  together. Over the next month I will be putting together a standards update to keep client’s informed of the changes and challenges in specifying  for height safety.

Please do take height safety seriously. Not all installers have the same expertise or can provide  real values and value for money-





Moving on

Another award for Highwire Ltd


We were pleased to receive a lovely certificate and plaque recording us achieving bronze level in the CITB pilot of the BEFAIR  framework.


The frame work is designed to retain skills by being the first global equity and diversity framework for the construction sector and will continue to gain our full support.

We enjoyed many aspects of implementing the pilot scheme, it got our all our staff talking and understanding each others worlds and perspectives  a little better. We would whole heartedly recommend the framework to any company big or small for the over all business benefits.
