Within a week of its appointment, teams from BMH Scaffolding began installation on the residential and retail block, to ensure the full structure would be ready for the next phase.
Christian Watson, Phoenix Brickwork chairman, said: “This is yet another terrific win for BMH Scaffolding, part of the Phoenix Brickwork group of companies.
“This demonstrates the breadth and depth of our offering to our main contractors, and our ability to handle ever-larger projects.
“Our growth across the country continues from north to south, despite the challenges of Covid restrictions, and is testament to the quality, expertise and industry knowledge of our workforce.”
The scaffolding element is scheduled to take 52 weeks of the overall 138-week build plan, and is described as challenging in timings and scale. The project involves in excess of 1,000 tonnes of independent scaffolding with loading bays and stair towers, being installed up to 18 storeys high.
Kevin Mee, BMH’s site manager, said: “With a project of this size, it’s important to make a fast and efficient start.
“Our expert team of almost two dozen scaffolders is already delivering impressive progress in all areas, to make sure that multiple elevations are ready in time for the next stages of construction.”
With a turnover now exceeding £25 million, Phoenix Brickwork, founded in 2010 and based at Brookhill Industrial Estate, has become a key player in the national sub-contracting landscape.
