Chelsea Barracks Ph 1 & Ph 2

Chelsea Barracks, Chelsea Bridge Road
Chelsea Barracks was a British Army Barracks located in the city of Westminster, London, adjacent to Chelsea and Belgravia, on Chelsea Bridge Road. The only evidence that remains is a chapel called Guards’ Chapel, this building is listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest. Today the site is now under construction and is set to be one of the most sort after places to live in London.
The first part of Chelsea Barracks consists of 5 huge blocks each containing apartments, housing, swimming pools, gyms and shops. The scaffold proved very difficult to design and had to go under many changes during the course of the erection, this was due to such a complex structure and multiple changes throughout. These were all done successfully and the scaffold was erected to service many different trades throughout the duration of the job.

All 5 blocks each had a Cuplock with a mixture of tube and fitting scaffold wrapped around them and covered in Monarflex. Each building was clad with a beautiful stone that required a bespoke lifting system to be able to move the stone around the building. Once erect the scaffold had huge beam sections introduced to allow access that was not to be known at the design stage.
