Tower build and decommission

Safely lifting components for the tower builds & decommissions across the UK

Elev8’s contract lifting team have plenty of experience helping clients to build  towers as well as taking down towers that are no longer needed.  Our experienced team of lifting professionals work in a variety of environments, so if you need a tower building on a green field site, a busy city centre or a COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards) regulated industrial site Elev8 can provide safe lifting of your tower build or decommission.  

Our systems are certified to ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO45001, SafeContractor and IPAF Rental + and we approved to work on MBNL sites and to access Cellnex sites using the Agora system.  Find out more about our certifications here.
