The team at Drake Scaffolding are delighted to be currently working on a large project working on a construction site in Plymouth. The new housing development at Palmerston Heights is an ongoing project by national house builders, Persimmon. The plan is for four large developments, all very similar in nature, to be built on the one site. This is the first of those four plots and we are so pleased to have been awarded the opportunity to carry out the work on this South West construction scaffolding project.

New Housing Development in Plymouth

We have worked on this sort of South West construction scaffolding project before with new housing developers so we are no stranger to the demands and requirements of a job like this. Working alongside developers and house builders, we are able to provide scaffolding services that meet the needs of project within the timeframes and deadlines specified.

While this is largely a development of residential homes, Persimmon will actually take the ground floor of the first plot as their South West head office with the remainder of the floors being allocated as housing.

South West Construction Scaffolding Project

As you can see from the images above, the extensive scaffolding has to be carried out in stages, allowing each level to be accessed and built. Once the ground level is built, the team need access to operate at higher levels to add the various floors. You can see from the extent of the scaffold just how big the development will be upon completion. While there is very little footfall to the site, apart from the construction workers, we still have to consider the teams that are working on site and their safety which is paramount. The structure has to be secure for those that are working on the build and for those that visit the site.

Fortunately, we have a wealth of experience when it comes to South West construction scaffolding projects of this nature and a long list of accreditations and insurance so you can rest assured that you are in the best hands. For more information about our construction scaffolding services, give us a call on 01752 719515. We will be happy to chat through your project and to arrange a site survey.
