Commercial Scaffolding Project
About the project
Project Name: Folkestone Harbour
Where: Folkestone Seafront, Folkestone, CT20 2DR
Main Scope of Works
This landmark project is based at the foot of the Leas Lift and Coastal Park, where there are 60 new apartments being split across two seven storey blocks at the East and West ends of the sites, almost like two bookends, with 20 interconnecting townhouses and 4 duplexes. Every property will boast spectacular views over the English Channel and along the coast. Geographically the development is built upon the site of a former boating lake and a car park prior to remediation works.
The first phase of the intricate RC Frame scaffold began in April 2021. Due to the shape and geometry of the project this build has really tested the versatility of scaffolding with its curved details throughout the external façade. With each level of curved façade, we have had a full time carpenter on site to cut, install, adapt and remove ply sheeting to the infills. This project consists of 5414m2 of internal birdcages and 1732m of internal independent scaffolds to build both single and double skin blockwork. Along with the external scaffold, we have also erected numerous staggered loading bays and Haki staircases.
