Lowther-Rolton have served our Clients consistently for decades on a worldwide basis. We introduced the concept of the Technical Audit to the industry and consider that we have played a part in the increased standard of professionalism and safety now seen in our sector. However, we strive for continual improvement.

Our Clients, including BASF, BHP, BP, Shell, Marathon, WorleyParsons, Foster Wheeler and Siemens view us as problem solvers and as the standard bearers for excellence during the planning, engineering and execution of their Heavy Lift and Transport operations.

Our services are applicable to the construction of new facilities in addition to revamps and maintenance / shutdown / turnaround projects at existing locations. We work to meet our Client’s requirements on relatively small projects and also on the largest mega-projects which are executed worldwide.

The company’s focus is to provide our Client with the best independent advice available for construction and load movement. Our complete independence from all contractors, equipment suppliers and other organizations allows us to focus directly/exclusively on our Client’s needs, protecting their interests at all times. Our presence during a Project ensures that conventional construction techniques are employed efficiently, or where benefits are available are replaced by more innovative methods.

We have developed a philosophy of providing expert advice based on properly engineered solutions. We seek solutions using our extensive knowledge of the latest construction techniques and equipment, based on a full understanding of our Client’s needs and objectives for each individual project.

L-R offer our Client a commercial advantage by eliminating the potentially biased advice otherwise obtained from equipment suppliers and contractors.
