Our main contractor was let down by a scaffolding firm who ignored agreed installation dates . Contacted “Priority Scaffolding “. They came within 2 days. Soon as house works done they returned to dismantle etc. Their scaffolding team were excellent and highly efficient. This firm live up to their name and we’re well pleased.

Temporary Roof Scaffold Specialists

At Priority Scaffolding, Cambridge, we can erect a scaffold and temporary roof with tin sheeting for a range of needs. Most often this is for loft conversions and renovation or refurbishment work to keep projects watertight.

A temporary roof scaffold is erect by fixing the steel tubes together to form a large structure that completely covers the required area. We then cover the scaffold structure with a waterproof material such as monarflex. This protects the internal area from wind and rain, thereby allowing any building work to take place without the nuisance of the elements. Erecting a temporary roof scaffold whilst completing any construction can also save you money in the long run. Particularly poor weather when working on a building project can cause problems with materials and tasks. which therefore means that you will need to replace materials and the job may take longer to complete. It may also require re-doing entirely, all of which cost you more money. A temporary roof scaffold is a perfect solution to avoiding these problems.

Single Scaffolding Cambridge

Single scaffolds – otherwise known as “Bricklayers Scaffold”, is predominantly used by bricklayers when they are repairing brickwork or building a new property. The Single scaffold is best used on smaller buildings due to lack of manoeuvrability in regard to elevating or lowering the scaffold. Therefor single scaffolds are ideal for smaller buildings as they offer a stable base for any labourers, and they are easily erected to the required height.

Independent & Double Scaffolding

Double scaffolding – known colloquially as Masons Scaffold, is perfect for any buildings which are construct from stone. With any stone building, it is difficult to create holes in walls for support logs to keep the scaffold secure. Erected in a different way to a single scaffold, double scaffold makes use of an extra section of scaffolding as a support for the rest of the structure.

However, like single scaffolding, there is not a lot of manoeuvrability when raising and lowering the platform. Therefore it is only practical with use on similar buildings or when working on a specific area of a building.

Some of our Scaffolding Cambridge work:

Support & Suspended Scaffolding

A suspended scaffold is unique to other scaffolding techniques in that the scaffold is secured at the top of the building rather than at the base. This means that there is no scaffold near the ground to cause inconvenience for vehicles and passersby.As such this form of scaffolding is highly useful for tall buildings, especially when the building is on a busy road.

The scaffold is suspended from your roof using ropes or wires. Because of this, the platform can easily be raised or lowered as needed. Therefore, you can use this for a wide range of tasks from repairs to renovations.

Roof Edge Protection Scaffolding

When undertaking any type of construction work the safety of any workers is of paramount importance. That’s why at Priority Scaffolding specialises in edge protection. We install a variety of edge protection frameworks dependent on what material the structure is.

Edge protection does exactly what the name suggests by erecting a barrier around any edge that carries risk of falling. This helps to prevent any accidents on the construction site.Priority Scaffolding can erect any scaffold with edge protection as well as installing edge protection on existing scaffold structures.

Safety Scaffolding – Birdcage & Crash Deck Scaffolding

Crash deck and birdcage scaffolding are useful to complete any indoor renovation or repair work. (you can use this scaffold outdoor if needed), particularly when working in a building with a high roof placement.

Because crash deck and birdcage scaffolding are predominantly for internal work, they are usually erect with a lighter material. This makes crash deck and birdcage scaffolding relatively easy and quick to erect and dismantle. However, this should be complete by professional scaffolders due to the requirements to comply with Health and Safety standards.

Birdcage scaffolding is erect by arranging standards at regular intervals. A maximum of 2.5 metres apart – then tied together using a grid of transoms and ledgers. We then lay boards over the scaffold and secure them to create the working platform for labourers. A birdcage scaffold should also offer an enclosed working space for any tradesmen, keeping them safe from falling through any gaps in the scaffold.

Cantilever Scaffolding

Cantilever scaffold is erect with use of steel poles which attach to the base of a structure, acting as support for the platform above. As the steel support poles are angled from the base outwards, very little space is taken up on the ground meaning that you are not causing an inconvenience to anyone on the street level. As such this form of scaffolding is very useful if your building is located on the main road. The platform is elevated and secured away from the road. Creating a safe environment for labourers to work, minimising the risk of the structure being hit by a vehicle.
