Having won the contract for the new Boroughmuir High School in Edinburgh, we erected a moveable access platform to install the steel trusses over the atrium void.
The scaffold itself covers a huge 18m across the atrium and easily moves a total of 30m by just one man.
We originally tendered for a birdcage scaffold for the total atrium (13,000m3) however our design team came up with this innovative solution which meant we saved the client build time which improved the construction program, reduced cost which in turn helped there budget and increased accessible working area within the atrium for other trades.
All subcontractors who have used the moveable access platform have been extremely impressed with the first of its kind in Scotland. You can read full details of the project and rolling scaffold here.
