Caring for the environment is incredibly important and, as awareness of the many issues related to environmental protection is raised, more and more people are adapting their lifestyles accordingly. One way of improving the green credentials of a property is by installing solar panels, helping to reduce usage of energy from non-sustainable sources.
Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd were recently contracted to provide a scaffold solution to a private house, onto which solar panels were to be installed. As with every scaffold we create, it was essential to take all requirements into consideration.
The weather is always a consideration but was of particular importance to this project, necessitating the use of extra caution to our working methods. Also essential to a successful result was allowing the homeowner full and unrestricted access to the property while the scaffold remained in place.
The panels were to be installed to the central areas of the roof of the property. As part of our remit, the scaffold solution we provided had an access gate along with gin wheel: the latter was used to lift the heavy yet delicate solar panels up to the working platform.
This was a short-term project, with the scaffold being dismantled within seven days of installation checks. We scheduled the dismantling date as soon as the booking date was confirmed, ensuring the least possible inconvenience to both the resident and neighbouring properties.
