Gayton, Northamptonshire

GJP Construction have designed and been commissioned to construct a reinforced concrete base adjacent the Blisworth Arm Canal, near Gayton, Northamptonshire, for a 50 – ton crawler crane, with the capability of lifting canal boats from the water for maintenance and refurbishment. The works are not without some unusual restrictions due to very narrow access and weight restrictions on existing canal bridges on all approaches to the project. All design works and liaison with the Canal & River Trust was undertaken by GJP.
