Dealing with a setback 2012-2013
During a heavy storm with very exceptional gusts of 74 mph my existing 150 foot antenna tower collapsed at 5th January 2012. I had to deal with this setback and rebuilding it using a second-hand Liebherr 120HC tower crane base as rotor and 130 foot Telecommunication mast. https://www.qrz.com/lookup/pa1a


Discipline and perseverance 2008-2018 My definition of success to achieve it. This project was not a sacrifice but has moved me further along the upward curve of life. Performed all the construction steps for building a new premises. Acting as general contractor with all aspect of construction work which has been carried out by myself during this period. http://www.werklust-leens.nl
