Palmers Scaffolding UK is providing modern access solutions on an historic old mint in Edinburgh for main contractors ISG.

The central Edinburgh redevelopment project – to be known as ‘The Registers’ – will see a tranformation of the former mint building into a mixed-use development of 5,700 m2 of Grade A office space and 1,000 m2 of leisure space.

Nine Palmers Scaffolding UK Ltd operatives are providing 11 lifts of scaffolding access until December on the 21.5m high historic mint building.

The are enabling ISG’s construction workers to retain and repair the building’s façade, whilst reconfiguring and extending the capacity of the building, with a new steel frame structure.

The £200,000+ scaffold is a physically-tied Lahyer Allround modular access system, designed by Palmers’ in-house engineers.

Palmers Scaffolding UK Limited Managing Director, Lindsay Harle said: “It’s fantastic to be working with ISG on this interesting, challenging project on such an historic building in central Edinburgh – working closely with them to overcome access hurdles in the process.

“The very tight nature of the city centre site has made the temporary scaffolding works particularly challenging. And the client has also made the unusual request of installing the scaffold ties to the steelwork prior to the scaffold being erected. But these are challenges we relish for our clients.”

Ian McFarlane, Palmers Director of Business and Project Development added: “Palmers Scotland branch has won a number of significant contracts in Edinburgh and Glasgow recently, close to our headquarters.

“We are pleased to be working in conjunction with ISG Construction Limited to provide their scaffold support on this significant development in central Edinburgh and look forward to bringing the access provision in on time, and on budget.”
