BUILDING safety systems specialist Rostek-UK has won a £200,000 contract to work on an £86 million development in London for supermarket group Tesco.

Main contractor Willmott Dixon awarded the Sheffield firm the contract to supply and install building maintenance safety systems, including abseiling equipment, anchor systems, ladders and walkways.

Rob Clasby of Willmott Dixon said his firm had chosen Rostek-UK because it already had a good working relationship with the company, which had created a cost-effective solution for the building design.

The mixed-use development comprises an 80,000 square foot Tesco superstore, seven more retail units, a police station, car park and 259 apartments in the heart of London’s Thames Gateway Regeneration area.

Rostek-UK specialises in fall protection and façade access and was established in February 2010.

The company is backed by finnish global facade access manufacturer Rostek OY.

Rostek is headed by directors Dave Uttley and John Hepworth, both of whom have extensive experience within the industry.
