Abseiling for Construction & Building Maintenance in Forest Gate
It is not always possible to access your Forest Gate building once the scaffold has been struck and using cherry pickers is simply too expensive. To put things in perspective, our abseilers can usually complete the task for the cost of hiring a cherrypicker! and that doesn’t include anyone to actually complete the work you need, it’s only the hiring cost.
If you add that to the inconvenience of trying manoeuvre a massive lorry to the work area, abseiling really does make sense. Or abseilers can reach any area of your building to assist with installations or repair an ongoing issue, be it a leaking gutter, replacing glazing, adding an expansion joint or inspecting for faults.

Facts About Forest Gate
Forest Gate History
First known record of the name ‘Forest Gate’ comes from the West Ham parish registers of the late 17th century and describes a gate placed across the modern Woodford Road to prevent cattle straying from the open Wanstead Flats area of Epping Forest onto the main Roman road linking Camulodunum to Londinium.
At the time of the gate’s construction, the Forest and its mosaic of habitats extended from Epping to the Romford Road where a coppice woodland called ‘Hamfrith’ Wood which existed until around 1700, formed the southernmost point.
Forest Gate is a residential district in east London, England, in the London Borough of Newham. The area has never been an administrative unit and so has never had any formal boundaries. Therefore, it is often seen as conterminous with the E7 postal area and so it lies on both sides of the boundary between West and East Ham.
The area lies roughly 7 miles northeast of Charing Cross and is bordered by Manor Park to the east and Stratford town center to the west. Forest Gate is 1.5 miles east of Westfield Stratford City and the 2012 Olympic Park. The northern half of the busy Green Street runs through it and from 2019, Forest Gate railway station will be served by Crossrail.
