Located adjacent to the U.S. Embassy, the development will create 2,000 homes comprising a mix of luxury suites, apartments and penthouses.
With the complex shapes of the residential buildings, its proximity to the River Thames and the potential for strong winds, the sites traditional tube and fitting scaffold design had to be clad effectively with high performance flame retardant sheeting during construction.
Icopals Monarflex Scaffband Flamesafe sheeting was secured to a purpose-designed scaffold screen framework, ensuring it remained in place. This provided a flush finish whilst extending the life span of the product.
The sheeting was supplied to Millcroft Scaffolding, who is providing independent access scaffolding to six blocks of the development, some of which rise to 55m high.
The project is currently on site; it is due for completion in early 2016.
