Failsworth Church, Manchester

Failsworth Church

Project Name – Failsworth Church

Main Contractor – LEP and Lambert Walker

Works – HT were contracted to provide a fully boarded external and internal access scaffold for general stonework repairs and repairs to the spire.

The main contractor brief was to provide a scaffold at high level only and not be at risk from high winds. The scaffold was erected by means of conventional materials with modular beam work at high level spanning over the nave.

Materials – The project required conventional scaffolding materials.

Design – The design had to take into account the very high wind loadings the scaffold would be subjected to. These concerns were mitigated by the use of vented sheeting which dramatically reduced the stress on the structure from high winds.
