Main Building Perimeter, including rear West Elevation. (Review 1, Phase 2).
For this Commercial Scaffolding project, We erected an independent scaffold to the South, West & East elevations of the building to give access for major refurbishment works and extension of the existing building up another floor.
In total, the scaffold was approximately 125 metres lineal x 15 metres high to roof level, which extended to 17 metres high when the additional floor was installed.
At a high level, we needed to bridge over 2 no. adjacent properties to achieve full access.
We also bridged over the rear elevation site entrance. The Independent scaffold was erected in 2 metres fully boarded platforms with double handrail & ladder access to every elevation. The structure was tied to the existing building using Hilti ties fixed to the wall at a ratio of every 16 square metres. The scaffold was also encapsulated with Monarflex sheeting from the 1st / 2nd level up.
This project was erected in compliance with TG20.13.
On the East elevation Street elevation, we installed a 500 kg Platform Hoist for accessing steel and plant onto the roof, plus incorporated a System type Staircase for pedestrian access to the roof without using the scaffold.
Whilst on-site, other works were in operation, so we also installed double handrail edge protection on-site wherever and whenever instructed.
