Inner City on track at Ilford Station over Christmas

Scaffolding Project at Ilford Station

During the lead-in period to Christmas Inner City Scaffolding and our sister company Downwell Demolition were busy. We completed the installation of a complex internal bespoke ladder beamed scaffold frame at Ilford Station for Volker Fitzpatrick.

Our scaffolding works involved cantilever beams splayed out through the windows. This allowed us to build external edge protection for the 2nd phase Christmas Day blockade works.

The key focus was ensuring maximum amount of pedestrian walkways and head heights. This allowed the station to remain fully operational.

On Christmas Day we returned to complete the 2nd phase external works.

These works included cutting holes in the roof and erecting  full protection scaffolding to the external elevations above the footbridge.

We developed a cutting edge weatherproofing system to ensure that there is no water ingress between Christmas and the planned late January demolition date.

These works were completed safely, with no accidents or incidents and well ahead of the allotted programme allowance.

Downwell demolition will start in late January for the demolition of the station building.

Inner City provide a full range of  services in London and the South East.

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.
