Leading scaffolding contractor, Palmers have been appointed by successful southern-UK-based construction, development, maintenance and management group Rydon to provide access scaffolding at their prestigious £155M Green Man Lane regeneration contract in Ealing London.
Palmers operatives will be providing access solutions on Phase two of works commencing this Autumn – crucially utilising specialist Layher Scaffold system – facilitating the construction of 187 new homes within apartment blocks which are due for completion in early 2017.
For the scaffolding and access, Palmers will be utilising circa 400 tons of the Layher all round system scaffolding to provide access to Blocks A, B G & H of the Green Man Lane regeneration. And there will be a typically eclectic picture of scaffold provided, including façade, birdcage, stairways, loading bays and cantilevered access.
The four phase Green Man Lane project for Clients London Borough of Ealing is being delivered in a 50:50 joint venture partnership with A2Dominion and Rydon – aiming to regenerate the Green Man Lane estate in the West London borough. The project value is £155M and is expected to take nine years. The existing 464 flat local authority housing estate is being demolished – paving the way for 770 new homes (300 for open market sale and 400 for affordable rent and shared ownership homes for A2Dominion).
Ian McFarlane, Director for Business & Project Development at Palmers said: “We are thrilled to be working with Rydon on the superb Green Man regeneration project – regenerating an important part of the capital. The contract confirms Palmers strategy to make a difference by offering our customers an alternative to traditional tube and fittings within the UK Market, with our system scaffold solutions. And one of the key factors in securing this contract was our ability to provide Layher scaffolding to the developer, as we also did recently at Aberthaw Power Station.”
And Donald Morrison, CEO of Palmers added: “Congratulations to our regional team for securing this contract, which is our first major success with Rydon. We are very much looking forward to doing a great scaffold and access job, which will hopefully pave the way for a long-term future of quality work with the construction group in London and the South.”
