Liverpool Hope University

Our team erected both standard and bespoke scaffolding solutions to the once condemned Grade II listed building. The solution facilitated our clients labour intensive specialist structural and restoration work.

Teal Scaffold were commissioned to deliver an external scaffold solution and internal works for the refurbishment project of the Grade II listed Aigburth park campus at Liverpool Hope University.

The campus makes up a substantial part of the University’s student accommodation and the structure which was set on a 3.81-acre site in the Liverpool suburb of Aigburth is located within the St Michaels Hamlet conservation area.

The building, rich in heritage, was originally designed by the English Ironmaster John Cragg in the early nineteenth century. The stuccoed structure was designed following a semi-Tudor style. It is of considerable interest due to the extensive use of cast iron. The ironwork details include an attractive delicate veranda.

The client’s restoration project which was set in private landscaped gardens underwent an intensive specialist structural refurbishment including the installation of a full facade and roof renovation.

The scaffold structure was erected using our tube and fit system which negated the need for splicing of the joints.

Our teams scaffold solution facilitated the full façade refurbishment allowing for the retention of character on the building, whilst refreshing its appearance, thus securing it for future generations.

Our clients Head of Construction said: “Teal scaffold erected the scaffold on Liverpool Hope University a Grade II listed building within a live campus in February 2021.

Variations were dealt with and actioned promptly.Any issues encountered where dealt with swiftly and with little fuss.
