Manchester Central Library

As the building is cylindrical, this scaffold was erected in sections, and then linked together, to create a working platform, following the curve of the building. 750mm deep Apollo beams were cantilevered from the balcony to support the external scaffold. The cantilever scaffold was required, due to the large excavation work being undertaken at ground level. The external scaffold consisted of two drop lifts, and four lifts above. This is only one design example, on a site that was ongoing for two years, with BDS carry out many different designs, including a 32m high independent, temporary roofs, various crash decks, cantilever truss outs, Bobcat support gantry & heavy duty loading bays. All designs & calculations where independently checked, and passed by Laing O’Rourke engineers.
