Homeward bound for Antarctica team

Two AJE teams are on their way from Antarctica after a second successful stint there.

And AJ Engineering has been asked to price for some additional works on the ongoing project.

It is the second time that teams have been sent to the remote Rothera Research Station to carry out steel erection works and cladding.

The team of eight left for Antarctica, where temperatures can plunge as low as -34C, at the tail end of last year.

AJE has been working on behalf of client BAM Nuttall who have an ongoing relationship with the British Antarctic Survey and have secured a 10-year, £500m contract to upgrade and extend their polar research stations.

The works have involved various tasks including erecting steel and installing the cladding on the new ‘Discovery Building’ which will replace the current science and operations building.

Their deployment to Rothera is part of a three-year project for AJ Engineering.
