Located in Milton Keynes, the Moxy Hotel boasts 210 rooms and over seven floors. Node Scaffold Design were requested to attend a site visit to review the requirements for a perimeter access scaffold erected to replace cladding elements, along with a heavy duty gantry and hoist arrangement to be installed over an access road.
The main perimeter access was designed in tube and fitting scaffold, installed at floor level lifts to allow for the full height cladding elements to be removed and replaced. Multiple bridge supports were required throughout the scaffold to avoid entrance areas and service locations, with a heavy duty bridge installed from the podium area to avoid a large area of services and maintenance equipment which was to be kept live at all times.
To enable clear access for a resident car park area at the rear of the site, a heavy duty gantry was proposed to be installed spanning from the site boundary across the road and supported by a scaffold along the public path area. This required a fully detailed 2D and 3D scaffold design submission to the local council and logistics team for approval prior to construction, due to the high risk in this area. The gantry was designed to support 7no floors of access scaffold along with a goods hoist, whilst also keeping a bridge entrance area into the new building live for logistics.
Node Scaffold Design were delighted to support our client for this project, which as can be seen from the photos was installed to an excellent standard on site in full accordance with our designs.
