When Jamestown first began producing plate girders, most of our initial contracts were for the supply of plate girders to Bridge Fabricators for Motorway bridges in Ireland. Since then, we have invested heavily in equipment and resources, added extra capacity and capability and developed a quality management system that complies with NHSS20.
Working with our Clients and Partners closely on major Road and Motorway projects, we achieved RQSC approval and are NHSS20 accredited for work on UK Highways projects. These certificates are available to download in the Certification page.
To date projects have involved fabrication, supply and installation of complete bridges, Bridge Components, Motorway Sign Gantries and Steel Profiles, to main contractors, fabricators and structural engineering companies.
Some of the key projects include A30 Motorway Bridges x 3, Supplied and Erected, N6 and N4 Motorway Overpasses, Ireland. See photos in the gallery.
Trial Erection Facilities
Key to this work is our ability, when required, to trial erect in our own premises at Portarlington. These trial erections have proved immensely valuable to our customers, allowing the bridges to be thoroughly checked and assembled prior to painting and delivery to site. This massively reduces the risks associated with site work, proving fit and alignment. Our expertise in setting out for these trail erections means speedy, accurate and safe trials that our clients can then inspect, measure and approve prior to delivery to site.
Jamestown have also built up very strong links with the concrete industry and have carried out many projects in conjunction with Precast Concrete suppliers. We supply steel structures encased in concrete, trial erection using the actual concrete lintels / bases that are being supplied to the job, Composite deck bridges, U-Deck Bridges etc. These strong relationships have yielded great benefits to many of our clients.
