Modus Access passes all the tests during refurbishment at Winchester College

Roof refurbishment at Winchester College’s New Hall has been completed by Modus Access UK Ltd. using Layher equipment to provide vital weather protection that avoids potential drawbacks associated with a traditional scaffolding and mono pitch, tin-sheeted alternative.

Appointed by Strongboard Construction Ltd. to provide a protection system against rainwater and wind loading risks, the Modus solution utilised the lightweight design of the Layher Allround® scaffolding system to create support around the building for a Keder temporary roofing system installed in a rolling, apex configuration.  The design initially covered some 60% of the roof refurbishment work and was simply rolled along when required during the three-month project – significantly less time than would have been the case with tube and fitting methods.

“The scaffolding descended to a flat roof around the three sides of the building, with propping and stabilisation installed underneath, with the remaining side using a full height scaffold,” says Simon Jeanes, Modus Access UK MD.  “Layher Protect panels with a lockable door also encased at the lower levels to provide access security and to present an extremely acceptable visual result.”
