Structural Steel

Johnston Rigging (Fife) Ltd are one of the premier steel erectors of structural steel for the structural steelwork industry in Scotland and the rest of the UK.

We have a highly skilled and experienced workforce that have carried out projects for both the domestic and commercial sectors.

Our staff provide a fast, efficient service, while adhering to all necessary safety codes. Get in touch for more information about our service.

Steel Erecting

We like to think what separates us from “the norm” is that we aren’t just a crane hire company. We also erect structural steel buildings of varying degree of difficulty. Standard Portal frame buildings to complex steel structures.

We appreciate that steel erecting is deemed a safety critical area of work so we do our upmost to eliminate the risks that we encounter. Our erectors are trained and competent on various types of MEWPS in order to access high level working areas with ease.

We minimise the need to “chain wrap” steelwork by using bolt on lifting brackets where possible. We believe that this method is not only safer but more efficient. Once erected, our experienced site supervisor shall plumb and line the building to engineers drawings and tolerance.

In addition, Throughout the erecting process we can install:

  • Metal decking
  • Concrete slabs
  • Various pieces of plant equipment

Not all job sites require a Mobile Crane – we have experience erecting steel using Pick and Carry cranes, Telehandlers and Mini cranes.

Light Fabrication

We appreciate that sometimes on-site remedial work is unavoidable. We have the capabilities to carry out light remedial works such as:

  • Reholling
  • Cutting
  • Welding
  • Slotting bases
  • Anchor Bolt installation
