We are providing a temporary roof encapsulated scaffold to two heritage buildings to the former Fulham Gas Works that has been renamed King’s Road Park. Brogan scaffolding will be erected for the protection and security of the buildings to allow for further investigative works and site access to commence safely for the intended duration of the project.
The client has requested that we wrap two of the listed buildings on site in scaffolding in order to protect them from deterioration until they are ready to begin work on them. We will be using Cuplok System scaffold around the façade of these buildings and corrugated steel sheets for the temporary roofs.
One structure will be Buttress as it cannot be fixed to the building, while the other structure will be fixed. We will also be building a hoist landing platform into the scaffold to allow for hoists to be added to the package at a later date.
The project, located on Imperial Road was home to a number of historic buildings including 1856 Chief Engineer’s Office (date according to lbhf.gov.uk), 1927 Former Research Laboratory, 1920 WW1 War Memorial and WW2 War Memorial.
Upon completion of the project, the mixed-use scheme will be known as Kings Road Park. It will comprise 1843 studio, one, two- and three-bedroom apartments. It will also have leisure facilities and commercial space.
Our works are due to commence imminently.
