The Guinness Partnership

Teal Scaffold played a pivotal role in an essential regeneration project for a registered social housing provider. The four imposing 15-story tower blocks presented very specific scaffold solution challenges.

The Riverside Housing Group acquired four high-rise properties as part of a successful stock transfer from the affordable housing firm, The Guinness Partnership back in 2021.

Both the Lymecroft and Dovercroft apartment blocks rose 13-storeys high containing 144 dwellings. The remaining two blocks; Rydercroft and Dealcroft reached 15 storeys high containing 168 dwellings.

Originally commissioned by the Liverpool Borough Council authority in the sixties, the four residential high-rise buildings were constructed in 1970.

Following The Riverside Housing Group’s acquisition, a high number of essential boiler repairs were identified by the Group’s maintenance and repairs firm Evolve Facility Services.

The tower blocks, inclusive of 312 dwellings were the latest properties to benefit from Evolve’s impressive investment works programme.

Standing 37 metres high, each apartment block rose above a busy residential area, not to mention that the scaffold was erected whilst residents remained in their homes.

As the buildings were occupied by tenants during the refurbishment works our team provided a considerate working plan that maintained safe access at all times to ensure resident safety.

The Layher system solution ensured that Evolve Facility Services gas team could work safely on their boiler replacement programme – ensuring clients homes were safe, secure, and well maintained.

Terry Shrimpton, Director of Operations at Evolve Facility Services said: “This has been a challenging project to deliver. The collaboration between Evolve and Teal Scaffold has been first class. The feedback from our team regarding Teal Scaffold has been excellent and we are looking forward to working with them on more projects in the future”.
