Country House

Case Study - Country House

Use of a large proprietary temporary roof has meant the complete refurbishment of a large Listed Country House in Oxfordshire was able to be completed on time – despite a demanding work schedule being imposed by the Main Contractor.
K Scaffolding took just 10 days to erect the single span roof, which measured an impressive 38m x 38m. According to the Managing Director, Allan Broom, the roof with its light, yet durable plastic covering offers huge benefits to workers.
“There is an uncluttered clear span for them to operate in and there is also an abundance of natural light due to the translucent properties of the plastic covering,” he explains. “The structure is also weatherproof, provides excellent protection for the building and creates a good working environment.”

Investment In Staff Training

K Scaffolding staff attended a series of training days to ensure those involved in the assembly and construction of the temporary roof were fully informed of how it was to be constructed and were able to work efficiently and conform to Health and Safety requirements.
“We put an enormous emphasis on training and safety and it was essential that our Operatives were fully trained for this particular contract and, of course, for the erection of the scaffolding required for the rest of the five-story building,” says Mr Broom.
The investment in staff training for the roof assembly system is seen as an opportunity for the company to expand its service portfolio to include the erection of such systems.
On major refurbishments such as this one, the ability of K Scaffolding to provide a high-quality temporary roof that can be erected and dismantled quickly, safely and with minimal disruption clearly has its attractions.
