Contract: St Barts Hospital, Little Britain, London EC1
Contractor: Skanska Construction UK Ltd
Client: St Barts Hospital Trust
Phase Two of the hospital near Smithfield Market was completed in 2013. This site has been the location of a hospital for some 900 years. Eventually the hospital will be transformed into a cancer and cardiac centre. Phase Two will complete the new hospital and the refurbishment of an existing block.
Anglewest carried out the preliminary works for the Phase Two contract which mainly consisted of screens formed using a framework of scaffolding to the external elevations and atrium clad with “Tufcoat” shrink wrap encapsulation sheeting. This gave a completely watertight and dust free environment in which to accelerate the M&E works prior to the building envelope being completed.
The preliminary works were completed in November 2012.
Contract: Reading Station Re-Development, Caversham Rd
Contractor: Costain Hochtief JV
Client: Network rail
Joint venture partners, Costain Ltd and Hochtief were awarded the contract for the re-development of Reading Station. This was part of Network Rail’s estimated £850 Million project to transform the railway system.
This re-development will bring 5 new railway platforms, as well as a large linking footbridge to new entrances on the North and South of the station. After previous successful projects with Costain Ltd, Anglewest Ltd were contracted to carry out the scaffold works which consisted of a birdcage to the transfer deck, numerous other bridged stepped birdcages to the stairs and escalators, hoist run offs, temporary roofs as well as screen and canopy scaffolds.
Towards the final stages of this phase of the project, Anglewest Ltd formulated a semi-permanent solution to construct a tuff-coat screen (a shrink wrap system), to create a weatherproof canopy to the edge of the escalators and over the platform at the phase break section of the project. Finally, one of the last structures constructed was a bespoke designed 125m long scaffolding temporary platform, complete with anti-slip surface, blister tiles and yellow restriction markings whilst the main platforms were altered and extended. All these works were completed outside normal working hours and during line shut downs.
Contract: Kingston Riverside
Contractor: Midgard Ltd
Client: Redrow Ltd
Kingston Riverside was a Redrow riverside development in Kingston upon Thames consisting of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments.
Anglewest Ltd were contracted by Midgard Ltd who were the Main Contractor completing the works on behalf of Redrow Homes. The works consist of an office accommodation gantry, stepped independent scaffolds to the various blocks with bridging and large stepped run off/loading gantries which feed the terraces up the building. The biggest challenge for this project was the setting out of the scaffold to miss the brackets being installed for overhanging balconies, this enabled installation without alteration for the balconies while the scaffolding was dismantled.
The Scaffolding works were completed by the end of April 2014.
