GMI Construction contracted MG Scaffolding to supply scaffolding across several areas on a new-build residential block containing 259 apartments over 11 storeys.
The work was tied into the Becketwell area regeneration project, comprising a combination of homes, workspaces, a hotel, retail and leisure facilities and a new public space for Derby city. Our full remit of services included pre-tender scaffold information, party wall agreements, liaising with local authorities, design and calculations and erecting and dismantling the various complex scaffolding designs.
Owing to the footprint of the building, it was the responsibility of MG Scaffolding to construct the scaffold up to the boundary while working in awkward confines, focusing on maintaining the health and safety of our construction operatives. An additional scaffold section built over a Thai restaurant originated from a higher roof, cantilevering out and down the building façade. Our logistics ensured the business remained open, and we finished our section on time and in budget.
