|Temporary Structure is Largest in Europe|
As part of the multi-million pound restoration of the National Trust's Grade I listed house at Tyntesfield near Bristol, SGB has delivered access scaffolding and a temporary roof structure.
The scaffold is free standing and imposes no load on the delicate building. Access scaffolding to the roof and chimney stacks is suspended with no intermediate support from the temporary roof beams which span up to 55m, one of the largest spans constructed in Europe.
Design Manager Chris Rogers, commented: "We had to design the scaffold so it was flexible enough to be modified as work progressed while including safe permanent walkways to allow access points for members of the public to view the work taking place."
