We have completed the first phase of our scaffold package to 44 Berkeley Square in Mayfair, London. This phase included the provision of scaffold for the protection and access of the façade of the development.
We provided a gantry to protect the public within a popular area of London. The gantry was formed from modular beams within independent scaffold spanning the basement entrance of the building. Access scaffold was then erected from this gantry.
We have begun the second stage of the scaffold works which is to the internal atrium. We are providing a birdcage scaffold through the middle of the staircase to allow access to the skylight for refurbishment works on both the skylight and the stairwell. Later stages of the package will provide access to the roof and upper façade of the development.
Our works will require extra care as it is a grade 1 listed building from the early 1740’s. The building was originally built by William Kent for Lady Isabella Finch for entertainment purposes and she lived there for a quarter of a century. It went through numerous hands before the basement was transformed to Annabel’s nightclub welcoming celebrities, royalty and even the queen! The upstairs was transformed into The Clermont Club, Mayfair’s opulent gambling club welcoming the likes of the Kray Brothers.
The house described as “classical in conception, baroque in decoration and theatrical in effect” have housed and hosted some of the most extraordinary people throughout history, and with the transformation said to be a new “high-rollers” casino for young people, the address shows no sign of changing its ways.
