DESCRIPTION OF WORKS:

Large restoration plans were commissioned for York Minster’s roof. The main contractor on this required a compound for vehicles, staff and some temporary offices whilst this was to take place. In order to create this HoardTek created a freestanding hoarding with vehicle and pedestrian access gates on the small grassed area at the side of the minster.

It was imperative that the grounds were not disturbed as there could be ruins as well as other historical artefacts buried in the immediate area, so any talk of digging and concreting was dismissed immediately. As a result this made the HoardTek external system perfect for the job as it provides the required safety and stability with no lasting damage to the local area.

MATERIALS:

100% recycled uPVC external cladding panels.750KG ‘Lego’ Style Concrete Kentlege Blocks.

COMMENTS: A full scaffold design was provided.
