Tyntesfield Grade I listed building, Bristol UK
|Description||Tyntesfield Grade I listed building, Bristol|
|Challenge||Design and errect a unique access solution for repair and maintenance of the Grade I listed building roof|
SGB (Formerly Harsco Infrastructure) supplied access scaffolding and a temporary roof structure as part of the multi-million pound restoration of the National Trust's Grade I listed house at Tyntesfield near Bristol.
Somerset contractor CS Williams led the £4.5 million project, which involved re-roofing, re-servicing and extensive conservation of the building’s ornate Gothic Revival stonework. Four weeks of intensive design work culminated in Harsco winning the contract with a completely free-standing scaffolding and roofing solution which imposes no load on the fragile building. Access scaffolding to the roof and chimney stacks was suspended with no intermediate support from the temporary roof beams which span up to 55m, one of the largest spans constructed in Europe.
