Scaffolding Plays a Part in Government Construction Drive

By on Sep 30, 2020 in Blog, Scaffolding |

The UK government has recently announced a £3 billion plan to upgrade a number of buildings across the country, with scaffolding set to play a big part.

Homes, schools and hospitals will be part of this widescale upgrade, with the hope of creating 120,000 construction jobs.

Network Scaffold is the leading provider of scaffolding across Derby and Nottingham, plus we can also offer access scaffolding, edge protection and alloy towers.

Here we are going to look at this announcement and how scaffolding can be effectively utilised on commercial and domestic property upgrades.

Explaining Construction Government Support

Homeowners have been offered the chance to save on home upgrades as part of the government’s £2 billion Green Homes Grant. Additionally, £1 billion has been announced to improve the energy efficiency of publicly owned buildings.

With grants offered to cover green home improvements ranging from the insulation of walls, floors and roofs plus the installation of double or triple glazing. The beauty of all of these sort projects is that they will all require scaffold services.

Business and Energy Secretary Alok Sharma said of the announcement,
“Our plan to upgrade the nation’s buildings and help build back better is good news for jobs, the environment and people’s back pockets, as we reduce emissions and help cut energy bills.

“I urge everyone to visit the Green Home Grants website to see how they can make the most of this fantastic scheme.”
