Project Description

As one of Wales’s most iconic buildings it was a privilege for LT Scaffold Services to be appointed the scaffolding contractor to design and carry out this bespoke temporary roof structure to allow extensive roof repairs. After months of extreme planning due to impressive artwork displays and events held by the Museum, the scaffold was completed ahead of a very tight schedule taking just 12 weeks to erect this dramatic structure.

This is the ‘largest temporary roof system to be erected in Wales’. With a huge 40m span which required the use of 1.33m Asterix beams. A total of 63 miles of tube was used and approximately 700 tonnes of materials including the roof system. Each bay was erected and completed on the gable end of the scaffold and then pushed away towards the central dome covering the Museum.

LT scaffold successfully completed this project with zero incidents or occurrences

Managing Director Lewis Smith passed on his congratulations to everyone involved in the project including the LT Scaffold team quoting “They are an absolute credit to our company”.
