Lyndon SGB has been supplying a large scale access scaffold for the Historic England restoration works at the 220-year-old Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings, for main contractor, Croft Building and Conservation Ltd.
The Ditherington Flaxmill Phase Two project utilises primarily Cuplok system for the access scaffold, with extensive beam bridgework, some suspended scaffolding, shoring systems and associated stair and loading towers.
The main purpose of scaffold is to provide the main contractor access for internal and external renovation works to the historic building’s brickwork and roof, on multiple structures across the site.
A gang of ten Lyndon SGB scaffolders were utilised for the Cuplok, tube and fitting and bespoke aluminium beam and formwork erection, for the 15 month contract. And all of the scaffolding has been designed by Lyndon SGB’s team on in-house engineers.
Lyndon SGB Brand manager, Martin Louch said: “It’s been a privilege to work on such an historic building – something we specialise in at Lyndon SGB. The complexity of design – caused by multiple height roofs and limited opportunity to take scaffold to the ground – has made it a challenging job. But we thrive on the challenges here.”
