Historic Buildings
We have provided designs to some of the most sensitive historic buildings in the UK. We have had to provide large free standing temporary roofs with key considerations to the historic fabric of the building and consideration to the public and Client requirements to be sympathetic to the building.

Tower of London

The Tower of London currently has a scheme to one of the further outer towers and ramparts. We have provided drawings to free standing temporary roofs with buttress and hoist tower with gantries for storage of stone materials and the contractors cabins.

Windsor Castle

Our designs have covered many areas of Windor Castle, including the Cannons Cloisters, Queens Stable Block, Private Apartments, Royal Libaray over the past 4 years for various scaffolding contractors.

We currently have two live projects on WIndsor Castle.

The schemes have had to consider the fabric of the building and the impact on the public and the Royal Household. One of our recently completed projects is shown below.


We were asked by the National Trust to provide a free standing scaffold design to allow for the replacement of the roof which had not been replaced for many years.

They used our design to obtain competitive comparable quotations from scaffolding contractors.

Due to the delicate nature of the brickwork to the building we could not tie so provided buttress's with kentledge to each elevation.

York Minster

We have been involved with several items at York Minster and have provided a design for the internal scaffold to the magnificent East Window to allow for the refurbishment of the stained glass and stonework.

The scaffold had to be designed to support a large sealed plywood face which was then covered with a screen of the previous glazing.

We also had to provide supports and propping to the stone mullions to allow other stones below to be removed and replaced.

The client also asked us to inspect the previously erected scaffolds on site to provide details to upgrade to current TG20:08 requirements.
