In 2012 Millcroft were commissioned by Tate and Lyle Sugars to strengthen the Raw Sugar Jetty located at their Thames Refinery in East London. The Raw Sugar Jetty operates as the main location where Raw Sugar is brought into the plant by sea from locations all over the world.
Millcroft provided access scaffolding to allow our specialist construction team to carry out the necessary structural repair and refurbishment of the jetty. The Scaffold was erected initially out of lifeboats with all materials lowered into the boats from the jetty.
The importation of sugar was to take priority at all times during the works. Our operatives received specialist training to allow them to work above water as well as being aware of tidal movements on this very busy part of the Thames, just in front of the Thames Barrier.
