The ongoing outbreak of coronavirus means that staff at Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd are currently unable to work. This is just one element of the widespread disruption caused by the pandemic. It's a good job that our work doesn't cause such issues: here we look at two projects completed by our staff that were designed to prevent major disruption to public services, even though carried out to a strictly limited timeframe.
Extensive repair work on this crucial water treatment plant was required to fix flues, pipes and a low-level roof. Working in close conjunction with the client, our team designed the ideal scaffolding structure that would allow contractors to complete the necessary repairs in as short a period of time as safely possible. In addition to this scaffolding structure, our team erected a gated tower to improve access and site security. A double-sided walkway was installed across the structure and the perimeter of an adjacent building, with secure handrails added to enhance safety.
Blackburn Train Station is an always-busy transport hub and so, when essential building work in the station's foyer was required, it had to be completed as quickly as possible with minimal disruption. Our team was therefore contracted to work only between 11pm and 5am when the station is closed to the public. A massive crash deck, both plyboarded and sheeted, was installed to isolate the area beneath which the construction work was required. This ensured that other contractors passing beneath were protected from potential falling debris.
This diverse pair of projects highlights the versatility of scaffolding provided by Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd. You can discover more of our work in the 'Portfolio' section of our website.
