Scaffolding with Minimal Disruption: Two Case Studies

Mitchell's Scaffolding work in both the private and public sectors, facilitating construction, renovation and refurbishment works. We often have to work as quickly as possible while ensuring safety levels are constantly at 100%; here we look at two very different projects that had to be completed in a limited time to prevent major disruption to the public.

To ensure the minimum of disruption to this crucial water treatment plant, the scaffold works required were planned well in advance, with all possibilities being closely considered. This pre-start planning was certainly valuable as vehicle access was an issue due to the need to park so close to the erection point on the access road; proper planning meant that everything from parking induction to scaffold erection took place without issue.

Several components went into making this project run smoothly. The scaffold allowed access to the flue and pipe works while a gated tower was installed to provide easy access to the low-level flat roof. Safety was ensured with a two-sided, hand-railed walkway installed across the structure and the perimeter of the building adjacent.

We designed and installed a full scaffold structure to protect patrons passing through the foyer of this busy station while building work took place. Sheeted and ply-boarded, the huge crash deck was designed to ensure complete protection to the entire pedestrian area, preventing any debris from falling through and causing injury. To further enhance pedestrian safety, the scaffolding work took place during the night from 11pm until 5am while the station was closed to the public.

This diverse pair of projects highlights the versatility of scaffolding provided by Mitchell's. Discover more of our work on the website and get in touch with us to discuss your bespoke scaffolding requirements.
