Palmers Scaffolding UK Ltd has landed a ‘Sub Contractor Of The Year Award’ from main contractor CSJV for its works at St James’s Gardens, Euston Station HS2 enabling works.

The Palmers teams received the highest scores for all of the subcontractors on the prestigious 10,000m2 site.

A spokesman for CSJV said: “Palmers have been great on site. They collaborated with us to great effect following design changes to deliver a first class solution. They have a fantastic safety culture, with a very good understanding of the system.”

Palmers Managing Director, Donald Morrison said: “Well done to Paul Duggan and all the team that are delivering the works.

“The whole Palmers management are thrilled that our HS2 teams working on this outstanding project have been recognised for the incredibly high standards – of safety and scaffolding – that are being set on this project.”

Ian McFarlane, Palmers Director of Business and Project Development said: “To be recognised for exceptional performance by a main contractor of the standard of CSJV on a project of this ilk, against so many other quality subcontractors – is superb and indicative of the high standards we are setting ourselves on our scaffolding and special access contracts across the UK.”

Palmers Operations Director for Special Access, Paul Duggan said: “The design has involved months of planning and constructing demonstration rigs for the client at our base in Chester, prior to installation on site.

“We are all proud of the works. We believe Palmers are unique at producing something with a design this innovative, and this award is a fantastic recognition of the efforts of many Palmers staff, on site and behind he scenes.”

Palmers are providing large-scale special access solutions and scaffolding for the prestigious St James Park London Euston Station HS2 enabling construction works.

The scaffold consists of a huge 10,000m2 temporary roof – supported below by 15 towers and 300m of bespoke Palmers special access spine beam – with a large-scale privacy screen around St James Gardens, to house CSJV’s archaeology programme to carry out a number of operations in a cemetery that is buried underneath the park.

The temporary works for principal contractor CSJV began in early July 2018 and the scaffolding structure is remain erected for approximately 18 months, whilst the archaeology works are carried out.

There are circa 30 experienced Palmers Scaffolding operatives on the site, installing the large temporary roof spans (of over 37m), the multiple scaffolding towers and complex access spine beams which complete the 10,000m2 temporary roof, access and scaffolding structure.

The vast majority (90%) of the works will be completed from the confines of a safe working platform (fully boarded and hand railed) and then be traversed into position, to avoid the risk of working at height.
