Our Heritage
Scaffolding Service

Our heritage scaffolding service is tailored to meet the unique access requirements of period buildings and structures undergoing renovation or disrepair. We are experienced in providing sensitive scaffold solutions for:

Historic Houses

Scaffolding for heritage houses needs to be designed and installed with great care. Our tube and fitting scaffolds can envelop properties without imposing on fragile decorative features. A scaffold design was required for every task to ensure no damage occurs to brickwork or masonry.

Places of Worship

We frequently erect scaffolding at churches, cathedrals, and other historic religious buildings across Liverpool and the North West. With intricate stonework and stained glass windows to consider, we utilize covered scaffolds and debris netting to prevent any damage during your restoration project.

Listed Commercial Buildings

Shops, offices, pubs, and other commercial premises undergoing refurbishment with listed status also need a considered scaffolding approach. Our independent tied scaffolds give safe access for maintenance work without altering visible elevations or roof lines.

Scheduled Monuments

We are approved by Liverpool Council to scaffold grade I and grade II* listed monuments. Our tube and fitting designs allow for repairs and conservation work while retaining the structural integrity of landmarks like St. George’s Hall.
