Zenith Assists in the Maintenance of the Historic Edinburgh Castle!
12 Apr 2023
With centuries of history, Edinburgh Castle proves to be Scotlandâs leading tourist attraction welcoming well over one million visitors every year from all over the world. In fact, the castle is a central part of Edinburghâs UNESCO World Heritage Site encompassing both the âOld and New Towns.â
Zenith is currently employed by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) to support HESâs High Level Maintenance (HLM) division in the inspection of the complete external fabric of the castleâs extensive buildings and protective walls. The exhaustive 51 day inspection programme will encompass all roof structures and masonry (stonework and pointing).
Zenithâs highly qualified rope access technicians, complete with GoPro cameras, provide live video footage to HLMâs inspection engineers at ground level. In addition, when required, Zenith provides IRATA level 3 supervision for HLMâs inspection team.
Connor McCurdy, Director, comments, âto be entrusted with such an high level project is a reflection of the trust Historic Environment Scotland has placed in Zenith. We are rightly proud to play our part in the maintenance of such an historic building.â
