Our remit the Compression Truss required Strengthening to carry the extended roof at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Stadium this is a prime example of how rope access can be introduced to deliver a more efficiency with combined solution.

Our remit

PHD produced a bespoke, radical ‘top-down slung’ solution born out of the methods harking back to the days of the Cinema and finding access to the proscenium arch.

The work was achieved safely with a mix of abseils access, MEWPs, and the experienced advanced scaffolders who are part of our Abseiling Department.


At PHD our Abseiling team provide specialist rope access services.

Our rope-based services provide a fast and effective method to gain access to high level, hard to access locations with the benefit of being quickly mobilised with minimum disruption.

Used in conjunction with our Scaffold and Mechanical access offerings Rope access can allow for another dimension, click here to see our video.
