Case Study - Randolph Hotel Oxford
Following a terrible fire in 2015 at the Randolph Hotel, one of Oxford’s and probably the world’s most prestigious hotels, K Scaffolding Ltd was called in to fit a temporary roof to allow the fire damaged roof to be replaced. It was a task which called not only for a high degree of expertise but one which needed to be achieved quickly to reduce weather damage occurring.
Now, three years later, South-East-based K Scaffolding has been called in again to provide scaffolding to enable the 150-year-old, eight-story Randolph Hotel to undergo a complete refurbishment.
‘It’s been a challenging task,’ says Allan Broom, K Scaffolding’s Managing Director. ‘Situated in one of the busiest parts of Oxford, we have had to work without disrupting traffic flow, or restricting or endangering pedestrians, and the hotel remained open throughout the eight weeks the scaffolding took to complete.’
