Championing History with Scaffolding

Championing History with Scaffolding

By on Dec 19, 2019 in Blog |

One of the biggest construction projects to take place in Tamworth in 2020, will be the transformation of Tamworth Castle. Like so many other redevelopment projects, investing in the finest scaffolding in Tamworth from Network Scaffold is the only way to guarantee the best possible result. Building the Future of our Heritage The new-look Tamworth Castle will transform the top floor with an interactive exhibition dedicated to the town’s rich Anglo-Saxon heritage. The ‘Battle and Tribute’ display will turn the space into a mead hall, an immersive combat film experience and a unique touch-table battle strategy game. Tamworth Castle will also be getting more pieces of the Staffordshire Hoard to display alongside items with the castle’s collection. The top floor of the ancient castle is being transformed and improved, including upgrades to the infrastructure, a new ceiling and lighting plus restorative work to walls and windows. All of this work will make way for the installation of the new gallery, ready for opening in 2020. Cllr Jeremy Oates, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Heritage and Growth, commented on the project, saying, “The plans for the state-of-the-art Battle and Tribute gallery are very impressive and unlike anything we’ve had at the castle before. “It will really bring our rich Anglo-Saxon history to life, including the role of our famous warrior queen Aethelflaed, and will be the perfect showcase for an increased number of items from the Staffordshire Hoard and how this incredible treasure trove fits into the wider history of the Kingdom of Mercia and beyond.” How Quality Scaffolding Helps Large and Small Scale Projects Network Scaffold has been providing scaffolding services right across the Midlands (including Tamworth) for a number of years.

Keep Your Site Safe with Scaffolding in Tamworth

Keep Your Site Safe with Scaffolding in Tamworth

By on Aug 6, 2019 in Blog |

Construction sites can be dangerous if health and safety regulations aren’t followed by workers. Here at Network Scaffold, we understand this, and this is the reason we have such a strict health and safety policy. When working on scaffolding you need to make sure your workers are safe at all times plus the general public if you are working in populated areas. Common Sense and the Rules of a Construction Site A recent study from a provider of industry workwear has revealed some of the most ludicrous health and safety rules from different firms. Here are some of the most bizarre rules they discovered – • Banning Short Sleeves – Given the recent heatwave across the country, this policy seems quite strange. The poll revealed 31% of participants were banned from wearing short sleeve shirts on site. A growing trend in the industry is for more and more companies employing a ‘long-sleeve PPE’ policy when working on their sites. • Hard Hats Aren’t Compulsory – Across the construction industry, around 3% of workers polled sustained a work-related head injury with 11% of these coming from being struck by an object. Whilst it isn’t 100% compulsory by law to wear a safety helmet it’s expected of workers and anyone entering the site to lower the risk of head injuries. • No Ban on Heavy Lifting – According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) handling, lifting and carrying heavy items make up 20% of non-fatal injuries to employees. These factors can cause immediate damage to muscles and tendons such as sprains and pains – leading to longer-term or recurrent problems.
