Oxford House

The Oxford House regeneration work included a full refurbishment on the 16-storey high rise apartment block which is home to 91 tenants. Teal Scaffold received a challenging design remit and deadline from clients.

This regeneration project involved the refurbishment of the internal and external environment of the 91 apartments.

The pedestrian area directly surrounding Oxford House was often busy, with residential properties located in close proximity to the construction work, further complicating the brief. Adding to the limited timeframe set to erect the scaffold, a safe scaffolding design solution was required to quickly deliver access works within a high-risk environment.

A focus on the reduction of carbon output was central to our contractors clients; One Vision Housing and their Net-Zero Carbon Commitment. This was achieved by improving the thermal envelope of the building by installing external wall insulation and higher performing windows along with a new insulated roof and improved flat entrance doors.

Our team localised our supply chain with materials being sourced from a local scaffold material provider. By reducing shipping and storage, emissions were reduced and energy usage. The factors above contributed to the delivery target of a carbon tonnage saving of 33 Tonne per annum for The Sovini Group.

To enable the construction work to be processed access scaffolding was erected. The end-to-end solution was delivered by Teal Scaffold. From an adaptable and accessible design to provisions of goods, passenger hoist and dismantle.

Teal Scaffold drew on  their teams’ years of experience and expertise to meet the clients expectations and timescales.

John Davies, Contract Manager said: “Teal Scaffold provided a professional and supportive service throughout. In a challenging location often subjected to difficult weather conditions; Teal staff were on hand to provide the necessary expertise required to enable our staff to fully access our areas of work in a safe manner”.
