From here, he moved into the construction industry as a steeple jack, installing lightening protection on high rise buildings such as church spires, monument towers and industrial chimneys.
Martin then progressed into rope access where he has worked on some of the key buildings in London such as Canary Wharf, Swiss Tower, London Eye, Centre Point, Tower 42 and many more. He has also worked for the BBC and various production companies within the entertainment industry, rigging safety systems, film stunts and building climbing/ice walls for exhibitions.
