We were appointed to supply and erect a temporary roof over the top of the a large residential property in Finchley, North London. The property had suffered fire damage resulting in the roof needing to be replaced.
Erect 6 fully boarded elevations at the front and the back of the property to allow the workers a safe working platform to replace the roof.
Extend the scaffold up past the existing damaged pitched roof leaving a meter of clearance.
Span across the front and back scaffolds with ladder beams.
Cover the ladder beams with corrugated steel sheeting. The corrugated sheets are overlapped by 150mm and then attached to the beam using wriggly clips.
Encapsulate the top 2 lifts of the scaffold with flame retardant Monarflex.
Install security system on the scaffold to detect intruders.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement - Wednesday 25th March
The Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening signalled the introduction of more stringent restrictions on us all and has specifically indicated that members of the public should only leave their home for very limited purposes. The message indicates that we should travel to and from work, only where this is absolutely necessary.
The management of the Downwell Group of companies which includes: Downwell Demolition, Inner City Environmental and Inner City Scaffolding has very carefully considered both the meaning and the spirit of the Prime Minister’s statement and whilst there has been some clarification from government subsequently that building sites could continue to operate, we came to the very clear decision yesterday that it was necessary for us, as a responsible contractor, to safely and securely close down our operational sites as soon as reasonably possible. Doing so will assist in maintaining the wellbeing of our customers, employees, sub-contractors, suppliers and the wider communities within which we build.
All sites have been closed down in a safe and secure manner and will remain closed until further notice.
We would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the key workers on the frontline who are continiung working for the good of us all.
