Chester Cathedral

Lightweight scaffold provided access for interior renovation and excavation of this 16th century gothic cathedral.

Chester Cathedral

Chester Cathedral wished to maximise work on the interior roof timbers, while at the same time as excavating the floor, which contained items of great historical interest.

We installed an access work place that did not use the floor as its base.

The system comprised of two lines of tracking 8m above the floor, spanned by bridge panels.

On top of the bridge, we erected the access platform, tailored to the shape of the roof, and tracked the whole system along the length of the building.
