The design of this scaffold was quite a challenge, there were two glass canopies to bridge over, we were unable to tie to the building facade, and the building is curved. In addition to this, hoarding and netting had to be attached to the scaffold, and there were limits to the leg loads permitted on the pavement.
Sky Scaffolding worked together with Layher’s Technical Team to produce a splay scaffold design that met the requirements of the design brief. The canopies were spanned with 750mm aluminium beams and we tied the scaffold to the canopy supports. We also put controls over the live load on the scaffold in order to minimise the amount of kentledge required.
