23-July-2018: Bourne trailer wins ‘Best Float’ at Wareham Carnival


Every year the Bourne Group lends one of their trailers to a local Scout Group, 1st Sandford Scouts for their float in Upton and Wareham Carnivals. This years theme was Scouting of the Seas and they did a fantastic job of turning our trailer into a pirate ship!

Bourne Steel Loader and Scout leader Andy Butler aka Captain Rambo sailed the Scouts safely though the streets of Upton and Wareham where other community groups and local volunteers gathered to join in the fun.

1st Sandford Scouts were extremely pleased to win ‘Best Community Group’ at Upton Carnival and ‘Best Float’ at Wareham Carnival.

18-Aug-2017: Blue Peter badge for Bourne Steel

After two years of filming the transformation of Kings Cross, footage of the Gasholders was finally aired on last night’s Blue Peter on BBC 1.

The Gasholders or ‘Gasholders London’ is a collection of canal side apartments built within a refurbished triplet of Grade II-L listed, 150-year-old cast iron gasholder frames. Bourne were responsible for the re-erection of these refurbished but very fragile gasholder frames around the three already constructed apartment blocks.

Footage of the bespoke pivot frame that Bourne used to lift each column into place made the final cut along with some great shots of the huge, 60mm diameter holding down bolts being tightened.

Behind the scenes, our site manager even received a Blue Peter badge!
