The Local Authority Renewal Program was created to improve the quality of Lancashire's existing housing stock. Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd were awarded a rolling contract to supply scaffolding structures to the crucial project, which sees up to ten properties at a time being renovated to bring them up to exacting modern standards.
A large number of properties in the Huncoat and Great Harwood areas were selected for renovation as part of the Local Authority Renewal Program. focusing on the repair and replacement of chimneys as well as extensive removal and render work. Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd designed and installed scaffolding structures to give contractors safe, unrestricted roofline access to the properties, which ranged from bungalows to homes up to four storeys in height.
A significant proportion of the properties incorporated gables: these properties required the installation of working lifts. The safety levels of the scaffolds installed at non-rendered structures was enhanced with the addition of a double handrail edge. To protect people passing below from potential falling debris, double-roe boards and gantries were included as part of our bespoke scaffold designs.
As the work to each property is completed, our operatives dismantle the scaffolding before re-erecting it at the next property scheduled for renovation. The Local Authority Renewal Program is ongoing and Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd are proud to continue supplying the necessary scaffolding infrastructure.
