Project: Annexe Building, West Smithfield
Main Contractor: McLaughlin & Harvey
We were appointed by McLaughlin & Harvey to provide the scaffolding package for their building works to architecturally restore and structurally repair the Annexe building, Red House and Iron Mountain.
JDC have erected temporary roofs to provide weather protection to the building whilst works are completed. The Fish Market and Iron Mountain required roof repairs so JDC have provided propping and access scaffold to the areas allowing them to be inspected before remedial works have been actioned.
Access scaffolds to the facades of all Elevations have been installed which has allowed the Client to carry out stone cleaning and repair work as necessary.
Scaffolds have been designed in line with numerous site constraints, namely over the Network Rail tunnel which needed to be bridged over, meaning vast areas of the temporary roofs were bridged. The limited stability of the structure itself has meant that the scaffold is providing much of the support to allow for structural repairs.
JDC have designed the scaffold with the support and partnership of RDG Engineering who have been called upon to impart necessary expertise and experience on this challenging project.
