National Scaffolding Week: Edward Woods Estate

Celebrating The Scaffolding Association’s National Scaffolding Week, we’re showcasing a recent project for Edward Woods Estate working in partnership with Kier.

During the construction of the gantries, scaffolding protection fans play a pivotal role in ensuring worker safety.

Moreover, they provide protection to those below in the event that materials have fallen from height, preventing unwanted injuries. Protection fans are essential for maintaining a safe, productive, and risk-free work environment.

Regardless of the scope or nature of your project, you can rely on our expertise and resources to deliver results both efficiently and safely.

Leap of Faith for Jason Roberts Foundation​

We have some exciting news to share!

Our SHEQ Manager, Nick Gillmore, will be participating in the adrenaline-fueled event “Leap of Faith”, organized by Brent Council and Wates.

This event involves either bungee jumping, abseiling, or perhaps even both! But the real story lies beyond the thrill. We’re not just leaping for the rush, we’re leaping for a cause that’s close to our hearts – The Jason Roberts Foundation.

The foundation continues the legacy of Jason Roberts and his uncle Cyrille Regis who dedicated their lives to uplifting the most marginalised communities in the United Kingdom and the Caribbean, advocating for inclusion, diversity, and respect.

With each jump, we honor their invaluable contribution and aim to raise funds to further their mission. The GoFundMe page is live, and we invite you to contribute to this worthy cause. Every donation brings us a step closer to making a significant impact in these communities.

Thank you for your support!

Mattison Scaffolding Ltd Optimise Layher System for High-Rise Refurbishment

Understood to be the tallest building in Hackney at some 22 storeys, Seaton Point is now undergoing a major EWI rendering refurbishment programme, installed by Mattison Scaffolding Ltd.

“The need to create clear walkways on all four faces of the building in order to optimise the movement of both workforce and materials has been fully met by the scaffolding system,” – John Moore, Contract Manager, Mattison Scaffolding Ltd.

“We were able to erect the structure to the full 62-metre height on two faces to allow the work to commence, then follow that through the remaining two sides. The speed and simplicity of this was significantly greater compared with an alternative tube and fitting scaffold, which would have taken longer, and has helped to accelerate the programme.” The full scaffolding installation was completed in 16 weeks – two weeks ahead of schedule!

The Layher site stair measuring 2.57m x 2.07m, with wide 0.94m aluminium stair flights, has been installed on the scaffold to provide full access to every level while a materials hoist has also been utilised. Access decks for additional ladder access also feature, while two protective fans have been installed on opposite sides of the building above beams which themselves were installed above ground level access.

The project represents a major investment in Layher equipment by Mattison Scaffolding, who approached Layher Hire and Sales specialist Rotamead Ltd. for the supply. “We have worked with Mattison Scaffolding for many years and also have extensive experience of Layher equipment, so the logic of recommending the scaffold for the project was clear-cut,” says Grant Norfolk, Rotamead’s Sales Director.

Mattison have also recently upgraded their transport fleet with Hiab capabilities to complement their new Layher stock.

“This is an extremely impressive installation and one which reflects great credit on all concerned – Mattison Scaffolding and Rotamead,” says Sean Pike, Layher’s UK Managing Director.

Mattison Scaffolding Ltd & Express Site Solutions Collaborate For Exploratory Fire Safety Investigations

To assist with the government’s urgent objectives to replace unsafe ACM cladding and EWI, Mattison & Express have joined forces to provide a one stop shop for access and exposure for initial fire safety works.

With a detailed and specific safe plan of works, and risk assessment, experienced and fully compliant (including asbestos trained) and insured Express operatives work alongside the scaffolders, allowing existing cladding or EWI to be removed to install scaffold ties to the façade.

With Express in attendance, the BRE or other investigators can commence their inspections and other review areas can be exposed quickly if required. Immediately after completion of the checks, the original cladding is replaced with like for like fixing, or the EWI is replaced and made good with fire rated mastic. The scaffolding can then be removed directly.

In a further collaboration, specific scaffold designs can be produced by the newly formed Express Design & Engineering department, which will greatly enhance turnaround times and flexibility to client’s needs.

Grade II Listed Building Safety Inspection

A Grade II listed building due for a safety inspection. Accompanied by Mr. Bob Youngs, MSL’s South London Divisional Manager, the scope and extent of scaffolding works was a fully boarded designed scaffold to all elevations.

The independent scaffold supports a temporary roof over the entire building. Double sole boards are used to support standards on the tarmac surface. Pedestrian walkways have been maintained throughout. A Gantry scaffold was erected over a ramped access. A Dolly scaffold frame is erected either side of the ramp. Cautionary signage is clearly displayed. All fitting threads are capped. All tubes are specifically sized with no impeding protrusion. Pedestrian access and soft-wrap standard protection measures incorporated at base level, protecting third parties from inadvertent collision and trip hazards. A temporary site welfare unit has been installed on site. A site office, canteen area and toilet facility has been made available.

This project was supervised by working on-site Foreman Mr. Paul Mathews. Paul is an Advanced CISRS Card holder. Paul is also SMSTS trained. Our inspection noted that the standard of work on this project is of a very high standard. The scaffolding replicates the design drawing and is very neat and tidy, no protruding tubes or boards. It is evident that Paul has instilled a high degree of pride in his team by producing such work. Great effort has been taken to ensure no loose material is left lying around at any point, all areas are made safe at the end of each day. It is evident that a focus on the safety of others has been a significant consideration to all the team, guard-rails have been erected to safeguard others.

Very well done to Mr Youngs, Mr. Mathews and all operatives associated.
