case study - hilton at the ageas bowl, southampton

Hilton at The Ageas Bowl – Southampton

As part of The Ageas Bowl’s re-development, a 175-bedroom 4-star hotel was constructed at the northern end of the ground.

RBS Scaffolding provided the access scaffolding for the new Hilton hotel. As well as providing access for the construction works, RBS Scaffolding constructed screens to allow the programmed cricket matches to continue whilst building works are hidden from view.

case study - gunwharf quays (portsmouth)

Gunwharf Quays – Portsmouth

RBS Scaffolding provided a bespoke access solution at Gunwharf Quays.

The scaffolding comprised a series of Cuplok support towers and staircases linked with 750mm aluminium beams. A series of secondary 450mm aluminium beams were installed to form the access frame work and the deck was completed with scaffold boards and a plywood overlay.

This unique design allowed complete access to the entire work area whilst maintaining access to the vast array of restaurants and bars below.

CASE STUDY - marks and spencer (hedge End)

Marks & Spencer – Hedge End

RBS carried out this project in the Hedge End retail park in Southampton to allow the roof masts to be repainted.

Edge protection including the innovative SG4 Shoreguard System was used as well as traditional tube and fitting guardrail. The main towers were built with a traditional birdcage scaffold to surround each mast. A beam section was provided for safe access and stability. Structural engineer reports were used to allow internal propping to support the scaffold and Monarflex sheeting.

CASE STUDY - alexandra wharf, ocean village

Alexandra Wharf luxury apartments – Ocean Village, Southampton

Alexandra Wharf – in the heart of Ocean Village – One of the most desirable marina locations in the UK, has been undergoing a major facelift with the construction of Southampton’s only five-star hotel and luxury apartments for our client, Bouygues.

The hotel’s unique luxury yacht inspired design will reflect Southampton’s thriving marine culture. This was an exciting challenge for RBS due to sheer scale of the operation (over 500 tonnes of scaffold) as well as the demand on our workforce requiring over 15 operatives for long periods of time.
