PORTFOLIO

Holy Trinity Church, Wolverhampton

We have recently completed erection of the scaffolding to the full height of the tower & spire at Holy Trinity, Heath Town. This enabled masons to dismantle the top 6 metres of stonework to the spire and store it upon the scaffolding for re-building, once the rusting metal works are removed and re-instated.

The contract involved giving the client access to all of the rainwater goods to the nave, chancel & aisle roofs and access internally and externally to the tower & spire. This proved to be a very complex structure and involved erecting a structural steel beam 30’ long by 255 deep, to bridge the lower aisle roof and support the massive 10 tonne point load to the North East corner of the tower.

Gilberdyke New Telephone Exchange

We were employed by our client to erect a full working scaffold to the perimeter of the telephone exchange, complete with a ‘Haki’ temporary roof to enclose the works, whilst the entire roof was renewed.

The order for the works were placed on the 29th January 2007 and had to be completed by the end of March, giving just eight weeks for the works to be completed. A team of just three men erected the perimeter scaffold & temporary roof measuring 30m long by 18m wide and 8m high in seven days and subsequently dismantled it in four days. This allowed the roofing contractor to complete their works within the contract period.

Tamworth scaffolding have successfully completed many contracts using the ‘Haki’ 750 temporary roofing system, including many churches & telephone exchanges.

LICHFIELD CATHEDRAL

We were employed by Martin Stancliffe Architects to provide a fully boarded mason's scaffold to the north transept of the cathedral. This allowed stonemasons to carry out urgently required repairs to the structure.

The scaffold was erected over a four week period by a team of three men and included the erection of a 9m x 12m heavy duty platform to accomodate the main contractor's site offices.

The scaffold was erected and dismantled without any damage to the ancient building and was completed on time and on budget.

ROTHERHAM PARISH CHURCH

We were approached by John Cunnington Architects to design and construct a scaffold structure around the main tower of Rotherham Parish Church. The scaffold had to be constructed from eight internal gutters and span the four existing roofs adjacent to the bottom of the tower. This complex system of scaffold beams had to safely support eight fully boarded lifts and a working load of 5 kn/m2 to enable the removal of the four cast iron clock faces.

ST. MARTINS CHURCH, BULL RING, BIRMINGHAM

The church of St. Martins is a centre piece of the Bull Ring re-development. WM. Sapcote & Sons were awarded the high profile task of restoring the church to its former glory, in turn the scaffolding contract was awarded to Tamworth Scaffolding.

The contract involved supplying safe access to all facades of the church, main element being the 185 foot high tower and spire. The works to the tower and spire involved chemical cleaning of the stonework, therfore the scaffold had to be designed as a fully boarded structure, completely sheeted, providing full access and protection the surrounding areas from the chemical spray. This would have put enormous stress on the spire, so the top seven lifts were totally freestanding.

                 

TAMWORTH LIBRARY

Employed by Midland Roofing Services of Derby, to provide access platforms, support scaffolds, site compound and a 36m x 24m clear span temporary roof.

The scaffold and temporary roof were erected in a specific way, so that the library could remain open whilst the roof was replaced. Tamworth Scaffold erected the 'Haki' temporary roof in just over one week, enabling the roofing contractor to start work ahead of schedule.
