Radio Communications Tower - South Downs

An Unusual Request for CRB Contractors

Here at CRB we are used to unusual requests but we thought this property to be something out of the ordinary! The building is a Radio Communications "Tower" on top of the South Downs just above Willingdon, Eastbourne.

Radio Communications Tower

To get the site, our tradesmen had to drive along part of the South Downs Way across the South Downs, making it one of the more remote places we've been asked to work! The owners of the building Eastbourne Borough Council and the management company Southdown Communications wanted to refurbish and re-roof the building. As CRB offer both building services and roofing services we were able to complete all the works required. Eastbourne Borough Council wanted a strong roofing material supported by a long term guarantee as the building is in an exposed position. As approved contractors for the liquid plastic Sealoflex system, we were able to offer this fantastic monolithic fabric reinforced coating supported by the 20 year waterproof guarantee. Sealoflex is a cost effective, long term flat roofing product that CRB have been installing successfully on flat roofs, lead repairs, metal roofs and metal gutters for clients across Eastbourne, Lewes, Seaford and Sussex. For more information on our Sealoflex works and how they might solve your roof leak, please click here.

Internally, CRB's electricians removed and later reinstalled electrics, our plasterers replaced wall linings and our decorators finished it all off with some nice fresh paintwork. Normally this wouldn't be too interesting but the works had to be organised safely around keeping parts of the system live as Sovereign Radio transmits from the building as do several other particularly important systems including the Coastguard and Eastbourne District General Hospital paging system! Needless to say, CRB completed the project on time and on budget and we are looking forward to the next unusual request!


CRB is a family-owned and managed company with a staff of 16 full-time employees, supported by a network of specialist sub-contractors.
