The brief

We were asked to design and build a large scaffold in floor level lifts to facilitate the construction of a new fifteen storey apartment block with multi adaptions for brickwork and window installation along with various loading bays and internal works.

The challenges we faced

The project stands on a very busy road and at fifteen storeys required careful planning and the use of combi nets as the scaffold progressed up the RC frame. We faced a challenging programme and with the use of canti-decks we pre-loaded the floors to enable the best possible time frame for erecting the scaffold.

Interesting facts about the project

58-70 York Road is a residential development on a 0.34-hectare site in Battersea, nestled on the South Side of the River Thames in between Wandsworth Bridge and Battersea Bridge, offering exclusive Studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.


We are pleased to have developed our services into this new sector for Masons Scaffolding and look forward to carrying out many more high rise new build scaffolds.
