You may recognise the local school in the photos as Princerock Primary School in Plymouth, the location of a recent Plymouth school scaffolding project.
Scaffolding for Chimney Redecoration and Maintenance
This projected involved constructing scaffolding structures to allow access to the three chimney areas of the school which required redecoration and maintenance work. As you can see from the photos, we didn’t have to construct scaffolding for the entire building but rather 3 individual columns which gave the contractors access as required to each of the individual chimneys.
Safety First at Plymouth School Scaffolding Site
As this building is a school, we had to liaise closely with them and had to work around their school hours to avoid working above when there were children in the playground. Health and safety is if the utmost importance with every job that we do and we always give consideration to members of staff, visitors to the business, residents and other contractors as well as, of course, our team. The work we do always follows the strictest standards and health and safety guidelines.
We also understand how important it is to work to deadlines. When working with schools, we will always try and work around school hours, completing projects during school holidays where possible. If it doesn’t work within the timeframes of school holidays, we will accommodate where needed to ensure that we carry out the work at agreed times.
Site Surveys and Risk Assessment
We start with a site survey and a full brief of the project so that we understand what is required and take into account the risks involved.
All of our work is insured and we are accredited scaffolders with years of experience and our safe and secure scaffolds come with NASC TG20:13 Compliance Sheets.
