Renovation and conversion of a Grade B listed city centre sandstone office building into serviced apartments and retail units.

Our brief was to design and provide traditional tube and fitting access scaffolding to the front corner facades of an existing building, to allow various trades to undertake renovation work. The structure was designed to incorporate the installation of an advertising banner that completely covered the external face of the scaffold.


At the request of the client, the design included 10m and 15m clear span bridge sections over the ground floor arched windows to maintain natural light within the building. The bridged section over the balcony area was designed to maintain continuous platform width with the use of easy-fix transoms. As well as providing clear access, this element of the design reduced erection time by eliminating the requirement for ledger bracing.
