The Walker Art Gallery

Teal Scaffold provided an intricate combination of both standard and bespoke scaffold solutions for Liverpool’s most historic art gallery including a temporary HAKI roof.

The gallery’s prestigious Grade I listing status ruled out several conventional scaffolding techniques.

Given the complexity of the restoration on the iconic structure which is characterised by its grandeur of scale, and geometric form the project was compartmentalised.

During a six week build period our team erected a tailored HAKI roofing solution designed by our specialist scaffold architects.

The innovative roll-out method of erection ensured safe construction of the scaffold from secure, guarded platforms. This meant that the whole structure was built progressively and then moved into position on a track way. This technique removed the need for our team to venture onto the roof trusses providing maximum protection against the elements of this grade 1 restoration project.

The 750-weather protection roof which measured 16m high and 20m wide, was a highly robust and easy-to-maintain solution which enabled the optimum working conditions for construction work to be undertaken effectively and safely.

This project was highly complex, yet the diligence of our team meant no stone was left unturned in the pursuit to identify a weatherproof solution to protect both workforce and the iconic structure.

Internally, to support the temporary roof our team of specialists erected four tube and fit birdcages ranging from 21m2 to 176m.

Contract Manager, Simon Gornall said: “The project was a success, and the client was overjoyed with the finished building. Teal Scaffold worked professionally with the whole Krol Corlett site team and design team, from planning, erecting, and dismantling the scaffold, over roof and birdcages”.
