The new build house in Wiswell also saw a large portion of scaffold removed and altered to accommodate the rendering to the back and gable of the property and the front where the new driveway and landscaping are due to start .

Mitchell's men also struck the scaffold to the Factory on Weir street  where the scaffold had been erected for the roofing works, the site ran along the side the culvert carrying the river Blake-water, making the transportation of equipment a somewhat difficult task.


Mondays New Starter trained up

Mitchell's Latest operative Dylan has undertaken his Part one scaffolder Training Course at Blackburn's Training 2000.

The two week course is now awaiting his work based evidence submission to finalize his qualification.

Having worked with Mitchell's on and off from leaving school this training has sealed his position giving him the polished edge to the skills he has previously gained.

  Stuart Mitchell Managing Director said that Training was a vital part of the scaffold industry, and when asking Dylan" what aspect of the training did you learn from the most" Dylan said "the load weights of scaffold fittings and the importance of why scaffolds are erected specifically with the load capacity for the job"  

Stuart was very pleased to hear Dylan had gained a genuine understanding from his training and has set the ball rolling for a second operative to undertake his part 1 in May this year.


Our guys are now over halfway through the erecting and stripping scaffold on the Ingol Estate in Preston.
The scaffold is being installed as edge protection while the main contractors replace the all the old and worn railings from the flats.
This is quite a fast paced job calling for excellent co-ordination with site agent, installers and Mitchell's.
The expectation is that the staircase balustrades will be arriving on site any day now with and end date to clear site in a little over 1 week meaning the site is running to schedule.
More work with contractors like this always be welcome.
Having Completed all the Erecting to the Balustrades a lot of the edge protection is being removed with an expected site clearance date 28th March

Delays in the manufacture of the balustrades had a knock on effect, seeing the 5 remaining scaffolds having to remain on site until the last batch arrived for the contractors to install.
The site is now complete and the scaffold fully removed slightly longer than anticipated  

New Scaff tools arrive

Mitchell's scaffolders and trainees have been having a spring order session for; new spanners, belts, bubbles and alike. The advanced scaffolders have opted for Aircraft Alloy handles and in some cases they've  coloured handles. Heavy duty frogs have been another one of the main orders, we have also had a couple of full belts put through, so all the guys are fully kitted out once again.  The new tools were ordered over the past few weeks with the last batch arriving this morning. 


Thusday out and about

Today's working schedule has again been full  with works in Clayton, Accrington, Darwen, Hasslingdon, Barrow-ford and Preston

Accrington Victoria has also had additional works for pointing
In Haslingdon have had to install an extensive scaffold round and over 2 large bay windows to enable the contractor to re-lead the roofs at  3 levels

Preston saw a small detached house having new render with the wrap round set back  to accommodate

And tomorrow is looking the same  


Wednesday Work Load

Today we have scaffold gangs working in Clitheroe, Mitton, Wiswell, Clayton, Nelson and Shiply

Clitheroe will see a full wrap round scaffold to a large detached property for roofing works 

The Aspinall Arms public house is nearing the end of it's extensive re-refurbishment with the chimney scaffold being removed, work above and around the smoking shelter completed allowing for this section of the scaffold to be removed and a few alterations on the remaining scaffold to be undertaken to allow for the last few areas to have the finishing touches.

The Phased work to a New Build Detached house in Wiswell will see another section of scaffold struck and alterations made "accommodating the different trades on site"

Clayton is to see the table lifts added to progressive work on a detached house extension.

In Nelson, Neighbours to a property that has had roofing works undertaken utilising Mitchell's Scaffolding, are to have their house front and roof works undertaken by the same contractor, so as one scaffold comes down we will be be re-erecting the house next door,  reducing carbon emissions and travel.

Then on to  Shippley where Cavity wall insulation was installed, 2 of the elevations had areas in need of access, 1 side  of the property had a large glass roofed conservatory and an adjoining porch to span and the 2nd an attached garage. 

All in all a good and well planed day            

Operatives collect work Based Evidence

Jordan Birtwell came to work with Mitchell's scaffolding for his school work experience as a 15year old in 2009 Stuart Mitchell spotted his potential.

Jordan began working with Mitchell’s again in 2013  and after a few splutters got himself on track

He is now collating his work based evidence in readiness for under-taking his scaffolding part 1 qualification expected to be in April of this year.

Having worked on some very demanding projects we are confident that he will be successful.  


Work on Flats in Huncoat

Mitchell's began work on Wednesday 19th Feb erecting scaffold for roofing works as part of the Hyndburn homes repair scheme .

The second block is all but finished,  we are working with the main contractor to ensure all works are running to schedule. 

Mitchell's Operative Take  a break  and photo the second block we are now well under-way on the 3rd block 

Blackburn Library

Mitchell's started to remove the first section of scaffold revealing the original façade of this magnificent building. Having a tantalizing glimpse of what's to come adds to the overall anticipation.  

The new look is restricted to one section at present, an extensive section of the Northgate elevation scaffold is to remain which will be linked to the next phase set to run the length of Town Hall Street elevation. 



Mitchell's are pleased to say all our SSIP accreditations are now in place

Mitchell's have maintained our accreditations  for over 5 years with renewals due on annual basis 

The processes is very necessary in order to maintain Mitchell's standards and also helps to reduce the amount of duplicated health and safety information asked on company PQQ's


New Office 1

Unfortunately the cabins that we went to look at in Leeds were in a poor state and not suitable for our much needed office space.
Stuart Mitchell MD has taken the decision to construct his own.Over crowding in the Office has become a priority and the need for additional room is top of the list.
1) Fork lift Hired in to begin moving the scaffold equipment.
2) Yard Re-shuffle is now under way
We would pick the coldest morning in weeks to start but its all in a good cause
3) The scaffolder's will get an area of their own with full exclusive canteen facility's, Drying Room Fridge Microwave and the all important Brewing Facilities.

4) Stuart Mitchell is going to get a proper private office space where he can host meetings and  meet with clients without the constant interruption.

5) And the ladies of the company will get the space to undertake their work.
So watch this space more images as it happens  

New office

Today's jaunt on the trail of a new portacabin saw the MD in Leeds looking at 2 cabins sad to say they had seen better days. the transport would have seen the rendered wood disintegrate.
The decision has now been made rather than expand upwards with a cabin a top of our existing cabin , we are going to extend what we have.

Rock Fm

On the drive in to work Karen from Mitchell's Scaffolding got a shout out from Rock Fm, all the operatives were pleased she had be to top up the tea and coffee before work so they got a nice hot drink before loading up for work in Great Harwood, Clayton Le Dale and Preston  

Stoke on Trent College

We are now on the final round up at the college the final clearance date to be set in for some time in the next 2 weeks 
its all go to get the work signed off

Booking CISRS Tests

Booking test for our operatives is not so straight forward following the change to the CITB web site as a company we can no longer just log on and book a number of operatives each on is individual with their own user name and pasword 
not good 20 mins per application

Scaffolders support Chairity

Once again Mitchells scaffolding in lancashire rose to the occasion at a local charity event organised by Oakleigh Dental Centre in Oswaldtwistle.  The event took place at the newly refurbished Trickys public house on Thwaites Road.

Mitchell’s sponsored the event providing a wagon for decoration with bunting and banners to promote the event. Providing the sacks for racing and on the ground support throughout the night with the scaffolders in burnley and blackburn manning the various tombola’s and stalls.

The night was a great success with over £600 raised,  egg and spoon, sack and three legged races aimed at adults and children all added to the fun.

As ever the competitive nature of scaffolders came to the fore as the staff vied for first place in all the racing. 


Rochdale College

The extensive scaffolding requirements at the main entrance to Rochdale College posed a numbers of access issue.

The objective to ensure safe and continuous access for college students and members of the faculty.

The finished scaffold has created a safe and people freindly rout too the main campus and allows the main contractor a safe platform to work on.

Create a temporary disabled access.

Erect cradle support above entrance.

Link disabled ramp to access the entrance spanning the sunken service road. 

All aspects of the work undertaken allowed the college to operate with minimum disruption during this very busy time.

Working very closely with the main contractor Mitchell's ensured that the time scale was appropriate to both the college and contractor needs.

Extensive beam work spanning the entrance foyer and patioed areas had to be put in place forming a cradle over the entrance before work could begin cutting away the existing handrail.

The spanning of the service road required the use heavy duty steel ladder beam, additional handrails, the structure to be boarded out prior to the addition of Ply wood, removing any potential trip hazard and finaly a none slip cover is to be added for pedestrians. 

Once complete the link had to be made from the temporary wheelchair / disabled ramp.  

The linking of all 3 aspects called for accurate workmanship with no tollerance for any deviation to the design.

The overall covering required smooth precession joints from the scaffold boards to allow plywood facing to be laid prior to the anti slip top covering being laid.

Mitchells Scaffolding workers, helped out providing security in the shape of black tie and tuxedo-clad, they also helped out selling raffel tickets raising money at the event.

Actress Shobna Gulati, who plays Sunita Alahan in the ITV soap, collected dresses, tops and accessories from fellow Corrie cast members and sold them at a stall in Darwen Market. 

Madison, six, of Lord’s Crescent, Lower Darwen, needs money to pay for treatment outside the UK for her rare form of cancer, neuroblastoma.

An appeal to pay for last-chance treatment has so far raised £62,000, but more is needed.

Shobna, who has been a friend of Madison since she was first diagnosed with stomach cancer aged 10 months, sold hundreds of her own items.

Shobna said: "Maddi needs these vital funds to continue her life saving treatment. She is a very brave girl who deserves a chance at life back home with her family in Darwen."

Customers were treated to five-minute celebrity style consultations from glamour guru Armand Beasley, who has worked on Gok Wan’s How To Look Good Naked.

And the day ended with a raffle of Coronation Street 50th anniversary memorabilia, including Stan and Hilda's flying ducks and limited edition prints of Deidre behind bars.
