Mapleton Crescent

Located in leafy Wandsworth, bedside the River Wandle sits a slender 27-storey award winning building which is clad in striking green glazed-terracotta tiles. It was Europe’s tallest building, sitting at 89 metres high.

Valued at £49 million and built within a 500m2 site area, it was arranged around a unique triangular core. While some of the homes are overlooking the gently flowing River, others are awarded panoramic views across London, making it an incredibly sought-after residence, whichever view the buyer chooses.

The building, erected using the modular construction method, comprises 53 one-bedroom homes which have been completely occupied by local first-time buyers, and 36 two and three bedroom open market home.

To assist with the works of this project, we supplied a total of eight mast climbers with carrying platform sizes (5m to 12m) which accommodated the building’s unique, multi-faceted profile. Brogan’s MCWPs were double stacked to provide simultaneous access to multiple floors. To further support this, we needed to provide scaffolding solutions for challenges associate with the proximity of the River Wandle. In order to overcome this challenge, we designed cantilevered scaffold platforms over the river which were able to support the MCWPs.
