Minimizing impact on businesses and the public.
GKR needed to erect scaffold to complete work at high level on the mansard roof at W5. However, the retail space at ground level was still in use.
Access into the shops needed to be clear and pavement needed to remain in use for the general public.
Our work started at 11pm and was completed by 6am. This allowed for pavement closure that minimized impact on the retail businesses and general public.
We installed a cantilevered scaffold from the 4th floor, extended up to roof level. It incorporated hanging scaffolds to follow the profile of the mansard. We also included 1 tonne lifting areas to assist with the installation of the Portland Stone.
All works were completed whilst maintaining clear access to the retail space and pavement for the general public.
