SALIX

Mast climbers & scaffold installation 28 day notice

Dates, duration and working hours
Mast-climbers: Start 23rd August 2021 for 4 weeks.
Scaffold: Start w/c 30th August 2021 for 4 weeks
Works will be carried out within the agreed times of 08.00 to 17.00.

Purpose for the work.
The intention on Salix is to use public protection scaffolding and mast climbers with associated
working platforms to allow access for the proposed cladding works on all elevations.

What work is involved.
Enabling works will commence on the 23rd August 2021 and will involve the construction of
temporary heras fencing around the perimeter creating a fence line & safe demarcation zones for
workers and residents.

A site generator will be positioned on the hardstanding area adjacent the fence on Whitebeam
Close. A banksman/marshal shall be present on site for the duration of all works to direct and assist
residents.

Mast-climbers and scaffold deliveries will be managed to cause minimal disruption and equipment
will be stored on the ground in secured locations on site. The climber installation will be phased
around the building starting on the rear elevation and working around to the front elevation on
Whitebeam Close.

Scaffolding and hoarding works to the working platform will follow the same phasing as the mastclimber
installation. The working platform will be set at first floor level. These works should be
complete by early October 2021.

While these works are carried out to the front and rear elevations residents will be directed either to
the front or rear entrances respectively and this will be continually monitored by a
banksman/marshal.

All car parking spaces currently in use will remain unaffected. None of the areas we take possession
of will adversely affect bin collections, dry riser or any other services associated with the block.
How will this affect us.

Support anchors will be drilled into the concrete structure and it is anticipated that noise and
vibration levels associated with this work will be higher than that experienced so far due to the tools
and equipment required for works of this type.

Access for the residents, bin collections and the emergency services will be maintained throughout
the works.
