Contract: Gwynne Road, Battersea

Contractor: Mizen Design Build Ltd

Client: Mizen Design Build Ltd

Gwynne Road development consists of a luxury 14 storey building providing commercial space at ground & mezzanine levels; with 33 residential flats on the upper floors. The development incorporates an improvement scheme to the community including works to Holloway Park, surrounding pathways, that will benefit the community and help create a sense of belonging.

Anglewest Scaffolding Ltd are to provide an independent readylock scaffold to the perimeter of the structure built progressively following on behind the concrete frame. The scaffold is to give access for installation of cladding, windows etc. In addition to the main independent we are providing a hoist run off scaffold, edge protection, birdcages, Haki staircases, staircase handrails and Niko lifting track.

This contract is a challenge, to design a scaffold that will provide continued access up the building while maintaining the smallest of footprint to the side and rear elevations due to the proximity of surrounding structures. A large quantity of beam work is to be installed at low level to support the main scaffold above and tied into the structure for support and stability, finding this solution is a challenge in itself for our operations and design teams.
