Scaffold For Retirement Apartments in Manchester & Neurological Centre in Preston
In Ramsbottom, scaffolding is being provided for a development of prestigious Retirement Apartments, being built for Gladman Retirement Living, close to the historic East Lancashire steam railway line and station.
A large site, it has restricted access due to it’s location on the main Rd, and it’s close proximity to a local sports centre and bus terminus.
Carefully timed deliveries are unloaded by the site’s enormous crawler crane and distributed around site onto overhead-loaded designed loading bays.
Connolly’s worked closely with the site team to overcome the safety challenges of the complex roof installation.
All scaffold is buttressed rather than tied through into the building. This allows window and patio door installation that helps keep the building water-tight for follow on trades.
Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre In Preston
Meanwhile, in Preston, the new-build Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre takes shape. The Centre will be integral for the care for people with illnesses – such as Huntington’s disease, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease – as well as those with conditions resulting from a brain or spinal injury or stroke.
It will form part of the new Story Homes development D’urton Manor in the North East of the city.
The two and a half storey building – a visually prominent building at this location – also has four semi-detached bungalows within its grounds.
The scaffolding has been built within the roofing structure to give safe access for the joiners.
Roll-on roll-off has been used to make deliveries easy for the site team, with designated lay down areas on the site.
With ‘tube and fitting’ inside and out, with system staircases, all floors on the scaffold is fully bird-caged out for the bricklayers and the ‘block and beam floor’ team to allow safe access egress.
