The Mace team at Project 696 have introduced weatherproof scaffold wrapping to better protect the building from adverse weather and provide improved environmental containment against dust and debris generated on site. Mace engaged manufacturer and installer Tufcoat to work up a strategy to ‘wrap’ the building with sheeting to create a protective ‘cocoon’.

This has allowed a significant proportion of the fit-out works to commence 3 months earlier that initially planned, whilst the perimeter corridor allowed the cladding contractor to install the envelope unhindered and without disrupting the ongoing fit-out.

The benefits of the system are as follows:

  • A temporary weather-tight seal to the perimeter that protects 1st and 2nd fix works from inclement weather, saving on cost and quality
  • Privacy for internal fit-out from external view and for neighbouring buildings
  • Screen is translucent, allowing natural light through (saving on electricity and CO2 emissions)
  • Internal controlled environment suitable for advancing 2nd fix activities including mist coat—keeps out the rain, wind, noise and dust creating a hermetic seal
  • The screen remains intact in high wind conditions, can stretch, and has been impact tested
  • Screening material comes with a temporary works design and a range of proprietary fixings to connect at the head including steel grapples and suspension lines
  • The screening is LPC approved and fully recyclable. Where proprietary fixings are used, these are returned to Tufcoat for reuse and if used, timber supports are also recyclable. This drives down waste on the project.
  • Training is offered with spare sheet material and heat guns so the site team can effect repairs on any accidental tears.
