Perimeter Access Scaffold w/ Hoist Runoff


BCM Scaffolding 


March 2019


Hathway House is new build scheme located in West London, near Westbourn Park tube station. The project will boast 79 luxury residential homes once completed, as well as 23,000 sqft of commercial space. The main tower area of the project is to be 14 storeys high and will be complete with a bespoke rooftop garden.


A full perimeter access scaffold was required for complete facade works to the lower block as well as the 14 storey tower block. This resulted in quite a heavy duty design for the scaffold, utilising a combination of reduced bay sizes and twin standards for a portion of the height to ensure the scaffold standards were not overloaded. Aswell as this general access scaffold, a full height hoist runoff tower was to be erected to the south elevation. This was installed off the face of the existing scaffold so it required a detailed design to ensure structural stability due to wind loading, and a 5.00kN/m2 load class was analysed to ensure this met site needs for loading of materials.


Various other details were produced for this project to allow the existing structural to withstand the imposed forces from the scaffold, as a large portion of the access is erected from a podium slab. The scaffold is now full height and the hoist runoff is fully installed, allowing constant access for materials into the structure whilst the facade is completed.
