City of London Three Peaks Challenge

UK specialist mastclimber and contract scaffolding company Brogan is helping to organise and take part in the City of London Three Peaks Challenge - abseiling The Gherkin, The Cheesegrater and The Walkie-Talkie buildings all in one day – on Monday 7th September.

The Brogan group will provide the scaffolding platforms to enable the abseils to take place from the top of three of the City’s most iconic buildings.

Brogan - involved in the construction of the Walkie-Talkie’s Sky Gardens building - hopes the event will raise a total of £4 million. 40 individuals/organisations will abseil 584 metres down the three urban mountains.

Three of the company’s design engineers will also be abseiling on the day, together with the other participants in a bid to raise money for The Outward Bound Trust and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.

The landmark event follows the success of the Descent of The Shard abseil in 2012, which raised £2.8 million in a day. The 2015 event will be the longest civilian abseil in history - the three buildings have a combined height double that of The Shard. A strict maximum of just 40 people including some of the biggest names in the City, will make the descent of each tower one after the other.

Managing director James Brogan said: “We are delighted to be both supporting and participating in this unique City Three Peaks challenge. The event will contribute hugely towards improving the lives of many. I would urge our clients, suppliers, competitors and alike to support by way of donations and help maximise our fund raising endeavours for these worthy charities.”
