Contractor: Knight Harwood Ltd
Knight Harwood Special Works division have secured a fantastic new scheme with AVIVA involving a high-quality refurbishment of the Vodafone store on Oxford Street. The retail space will be transformed into a new and modern facility. Works are due to commence on site in May 2018.
Anglewest Scaffolding Ltd have secured the order for the scaffolding on this project which includes an independent scaffold to the façade, a gantry to span the pavement to allow loading and unloading of materials in busy Oxford Street. Also included in the scaffolding package are Niko lifting rails and various designed support scaffolds to allow cutting new openings in slabs for stairs etc.
The main challenge for this project is the logistics for delivery and collection of materials working around the public and the restrictions Oxford Street entails.
