Coventry-based Godiva Access & Scaffolding has been awarded the contract to provide scaffolding services to Winvic Construction on the city’s tallest new build.

Godiva will use more than 900 tonnes of scaffolding to help Winvic construct the new 1,192-bedroom student accommodation complex in two towers, one 23-storeys and a second at 14-storeys, connected by smaller blocks.

The scheme is located on the corner of Fairfax Street and Cox Street and forms part of a city-wide rejuvenation project following the announcement that Coventry will be City of Culture 2021.

The new win bolsters a growing order book for Godiva which is working on contracts across the West Midlands.

The firm now wants to recruit 20 more scaffolders during the first quarter of this year..

Colin Taylor, managing director at Godiva Access & Scaffolding, said: “This is a fantastic win for us and it will help to create new jobs for local people in Coventry.

“We have a really strong background in working on skyscraper construction so to be able to work on what will become such a prominent feature in Coventry’s sky line is hugely rewarding as we can really showcase our skills in this area.

“With Coventry being announced as City of Culture 2021, there couldn’t be a better time for us to be involved in such an exciting project for the city.”
