Our work takes us all over the country but two recent projects took place just a stone's throw away from our headquarters in Accrington. One project involved renovation work to almost 40 social housing properties while the other focused on new build properties. Both projects were located in the Oswaldtwistle area and Mitchell's successfully designed, installed and finally removed bespoke scaffolding to facilitate the crucial works.
The project involved 39 social housing properties, each of which required new roofs along with pointing and render works. As the properties remained occupied during the works, the most important part of our brief was to ensure full protection to residents who could be potentially injured by falling debris or other objects. This complete protection was achieved with the use of double toe boards erected with each scaffold.
To carry out the dual role of disposing waste from old roof coverings and delivering new slates to the roof, 2- and 3-lift gantries were installed, along with an additional scaffold gate which allows bumper hoists to be installed.
The second project in Oswaldtwistle involved facilitating new builds, many of which were sold off-plan and all of which feature different design techniques. We provided a daily presence on-site to make sure that numerous adaptations could be undertaken on an ad hoc basis, preventing any downtime.
Designed loading bays were erected for each individual property; larger properties warranted two loading bays. The scaffolding works were phased to meet the changing needs of the roofers and bricklayers, with installation for the pikes included.
Both projects are now complete. For more information on the varied scaffolding services we provide, check out or website or get in touch with our team.
