Shelbourne Hotel

The Shelbourne hotel development consisted of the refurbishment of the historic hotel overlooking Stephens Green in Dublin. 

Initial works included the erection of independent scaffolds for the demolition of certain sections of the existing building towards the rear. Independent scaffolds were also erected to the remaining elevations of the existing building and the new extension to the rear courtyard; separate scaffolds were also erected over and across the roofs of the adjoining buildings along with cantilevered scaffolds to the large chimney stacks.

Further to this a heavy duty gantry was erected to the North elevation with a 8m high freestanding debris netting clad screen, which provided protection to the existing building, whilst building works proceeded. A pavement protection gantry was also erected to the west elevation footpath with independent scaffold erected off the gantry.

Internal works consisted of slab edge perimeter handrails, birdcage scaffolds and lift shaft and riser scaffolds, with a separate large birdcage scaffold the ballroom areas and swimming pool.
