Project Summary

Enigma worked closely with the client to plan the interface before erecting a 4-lift fully boarded access solution by following TG:21 guidelines to support primary contractor TRJ with constructing the new modular timber frame school building. The scaffold structure utilising tube & fitting scaffold and brick guard protection panels surrounds the building with HAKI staircases installed to provide various tradespeople with safe access/egress to all working levels while constructing the new school. Additionally, bespoke designed loading bays help to support the fast-efficient safe delivery of materials on site.

Value Engineering

To support the timber-frame building project during the construction and fit-out phase, Enigma’s operational team attended planning meetings with the client on-site to keep the programme on schedule for completion. This ensured tradespeople had unobstructed access to fit exterior wall cladding panels and windows before lifting the permanent roof into position. The loading bays permitted the safe transfer of materials into the building for lining the interior walls and installing pipework, ducting, cabling, and electrical services.
