Mawley Hall, an 18th-century country mansion in Shropshire, England, is a Grade I listed building and one of Britain’s finest privately owned stately homes.

MG Scaffolding worked on the prestigious building, which sits among almost 550 acres of landscaped gardens, swathes of parkland and arable farmland. Using the designs and calculations of our external engineer Oryx, we formed a scope of works to plan how we were going to formulate the erection and dismantling of the various pieces of complex scaffold.

The project, overseen by architect Robin Salmon, aimed to convert the lower ground floor area into extra accommodation and rooms. MG Scaffolding provided internal and external perimeter scaffolds, in addition to temporary roof coverings, which enabled the complete refurbishment of the spa barn, swimming pool and coach house. Owing to the precarious nature of the building, we had to ensure agile and proficient work concerning logistics and moving crane lifts of cumbersome equipment in and out of the site. As the buildings were Grade I listed, we could not tie to the structure, so kentledge was used to stabilise the scaffold. We also abutted the building using carpeted timbers, ensuring no damage to the façade.
