Challenges included:

  • Working with other trades in same area

Narford Project Manager’s Report

Scaffodling inside Water Flume Centre, Skegess

We used vast amounts of hanging scaffolds to ensure sleek operations by all trades involved.

This project meant we had a major interface with other trades during both the erection and dismantle of this scaffold project. This involved many inter-contractual liaisons.
