Client: Kershaw Group

Location: Chelmsford, Essex

Project: HMP Chelmsford

Timescale: Four Weeks

Scaffolding Type: Heavy duty independent with supporting buttress plus additional kentledge for delicate roofing with asbestos work.

With many operatives already security checked, Rilmac Scaffolding were ideally placed to complete the work required at HMP Chelmsford on time and in line with the tight programme of four weeks.

The contract comprised of a full perimeter scaffold, approximately 120m long with a height of 12m on the main security building. The structure had to be fully independent and could not be tied, as it would normally have been, to the building.

To meet this requirement Rilmac erected a full 4m by full height buttress to strengthen the scaffolding and to cope with the additional wind loadings of a 5.2m high corrugated iron sheeting façade. This sheeting was a compulsory part of the project to ensure prisoner security and remove potential escape routes.

Working alongside a reliable, well known security fencing company Rilmac rose to the challenging logistics plan that stipulated a specific erection sequence of the lower scaffolding.
Littlewoods Fencing worked in unison with Rilmac and the scaffolding with full hoarding was made available to the customer in a timely manner.
