Queens Tower, Imperial College

JDC Scaffolding are proud to have commenced scaffolding works on the Queens Tower, Imperial College London for Russell Cawberry Ltd.

The works comprise a refurbishment to the exterior of the stone tower and to the copper roof coverings.

Opened in 1893 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee the tower is all that remains of the Imperial Institute. The Institute which was not a great success was partially demolished between 1957-1967. From 1966-1968 work was carried out to enable the tower to be a standalone structure.

Our works comprise an 83.00m high free standing scaffold formed of an inner access scaffold, an outer scaffold exoskeleton and a bespoke, circular temporary roof covering. The main external scaffolding will encapsulate a 2 Tonne passenger/goods hoist supplied by Sunbelt Rentals and a full height Haki staircase supplied by UK System Scaffold Hire Ltd.
