Chatterton Water Tower

Location:

Spalding

Provision of encapsulated scaffold access around the iconic Chatterton water tower to enable painting works and repairs to the tower, which holds 3.4 million litres of fresh water and supplies 22,000 homes in Spalding, Lincolnshire.

We were contracted to supply and erect scaffolding to the full perimeter of the water tower over a 10 month period. Our scaffolders erected and dismantled 195 tonnes of scaffolding to enable various trade access. A team of eight scaffolders and four rope access operatives worked on the project to allow painting and repairs to the structure built in 1955. Once erected, the scaffold was encapsulated with sheeting to protect the workers from the elements and to stop any environmental contamination.


We specifically tailored the design of the roof scaffolding, with our design eliminating the risk of the scaffold tubes piercing the roof allowing the tower to continue to supply essential water to local residences and businesses.
