About CAN Structures Ltd (Scotland)

CAN is one of the longest-established work-at-height contractors in the UK, and were pivotal in establishing rope access within the UK over 30 years ago. With a forecast turnover of £19.5m for 2019, CAN directly employs over 200 staff, covering a broad spectrum of construction skills.

Specialising in providing difficult access solutions, CAN is able to safely and effectively manage work at height or within confined spaces, be that using our own workforce, or providing safe-access systems for third parties.

CAN has a proven track record across all facets of the construction and civil engineering sectors, on projects large and small that range from surveys, to repair and maintenance, to new-build construction. We work on high-rise buildings, historic structures, shafts, stadiums, bridges, power stations and everything in between, mobilising anything from two men for a day through to teams of 30+ for a year.

CAN launches Confined Space Division

CAN launches Confined Spaces Division – Making the Inaccessible Accessible – Safely!

Structural engineering specialist, CAN, has launched a specialist ‘Confined Spaces Division’, with a dedicated team of confined space technicians, estimators and project management staff. This will open the company’s 20+ years of confined space experience, predominantly requiring the use of complicated rigging and rope access techniques, to a much larger market.

The launch follows growing interest in CAN’s specialist confined spaces services, which has included a diverse range of projects, including – inspection and testing of the heat recovery steam generator chimneys at SSE’s 735-megawatt gas-fired power station on the Isle of Grain; the deployment of a confined space entry and rescue team at Hammersmith Bridge and the provision of a concrete repair team to undertake repair works to the Beckton Connection shaft (28m diameter and 80m deep) and the Lee Tunnel, as part of the Thames Tideway Project.

Speaking about the launch of the new Confined Spaces Division, Mark Richardson, Managing Director at CAN said:

“CAN has provided confined space services for the last 20 years, but it has now enhanced its provision through a dedicated team of City & Guilds-certified confined space operatives, estimators and project managers, that have extensive experience of undertaking complex rigging and access work in confined spaces.”

CAN’s new Confined Spaces Division offers a wide range of services including:
* Third Party Access Supervision – supervision and management of confined space access for suitably trained third party contractors.
* Rescue Cover – establishing safe systems of work, pre-rigging rescue systems and providing rescue cover for suitably qualified third-party contractors.
* High Risk Working – for when specified risks cannot be controlled or works are a substantial distance from the point of entry or when complicated rigging and access techniques are required to facilitate access within a confined space.
CAN opens new Scottish office

CAN has just announced the opening of a new Scottish office up in Glasgow.

Both CAN companies have worked successfully in Scotland for over 20 years, works include rock face stabilising at Dunoon Sewerage Treatment Works in Argyll and Bute, structural inspection and testing at Burdiehouse Burn nature reserve in Lothian, and slope works at Loch Katrine in the Highlands.

The Scottish office, which opened in Glasgow on Monday 20 May, is CAN’s fourth permanent base supplementing Chesterfield, Northfleet and Portishead.

The expansion comes after CAN was acquired by leading environmental and engineering services company RSK Group Ltd in October last year, one of twelve acquisitions in the 2018/19 financial year.

CAN will be sharing the office space with other RSK group companies. Representing CAN will be Colin Smith, the new Regional Manager for Scotland.

Mark Richardson, CAN Managing Director, said:

“CAN is delighted to expand our footprint in Scotland with the opening of our new office. We believe that this move will provide our clients with the level of support and collaborative working that is so important to the CAN business model. We are very excited by the move and look forward to the new challenges and opportunities this will undoubtedly bring.

“Colin will be building on existing relationships in Scotland whilst also working to introduce CAN to new prospective clients. Colin has 25 years experience in the construction industry and has worked for CAN for the last seven years. His wealth of experience and depth of knowledge is a huge asset to the business and we know that our clients will enjoy working closely with him over the coming years.”
