Project Description

This 50m high rise building over a major road into the centre of Cardiff was scheduled for a full external and internal renovation. LT Scaffold Services secured the contract to provide full perimeter scaffold to all elevations of the building for Window replacement, render, cladding and general renovation to the façade.

Due to the complicated configuration of low level roofs and outbuildings, LT were tasked to design and build a scaffold structure that was supported by spine beams at the lower levels which were capable of supporting 80kn each. These were linked to towers that were built on specially designed slabs, installed specifically for the scaffold structure to be placed on. The specification of these slabs was provided by LT as part of the scaffold package. Shrink wrap was applied to all elevations to provide protection to the public and shelter from adverse weather conditions, resulting in an impressive looking scaffold structure.
