The brief

Masons were tasked with providing a loading gantry along with a system staircase and hoist to allow access with minimal disruption at Stoke Park Golf Course. Phase 1 of the project has commenced which entails utilising the gantry and the hoist for the soft strip in order to prepare for the refurbishment works to the historical building.

The challenges we faced

The main challenge was due to the building being Grade II, this meant that we were not granted permission to fix any anchor ties into the façade. In order to overcome this, our trusted engineer provided us with a concept which involved a freestanding scaffold.

Interesting facts about the project

It was opened in July 1908 by ‘Nick “Pa” Lane Jackson as part of the first English golf and country club. Shortly after the club opened many well-known people in society, including royalty, came to play. In 1910 it hosted the first PGA Matchplay tournament and many other significant tournaments followed.

Additionally, the renowned golf course not only has a rich history, but it was also where Layer Cake was filmed!
