THE LOCATION

An impressive regeneration scheme in West Hendon, comprising over 2,000 one, two and three-bedroom homes. Located in Zone 3 and adjacent to the Welsh Harp Reservoir, Hendon Waterside is within walking distance of Hendon railway station and Hendon Central Tube station.

PREFERRED ACCESS PROVIDER

Hendon Waterside has been awarded the prestigious Built for Life commendation, a government-endorsed accolade for well-designed homes and a recognised industry seal of approval. PHD Modular Access have been working with Barratt Homes on this development and have already completed 4 phases. Our collaborative approach and value-added engineering has ensured that we are the preferred access provider on this project and a tier one supplier to Barratt Homes.

WHAT PHD SUPPLIED

Layher System scaffold was chosen by the client. The benefits of using the Layher system is that it is more aesthetically pleasing, it can be erected and dismantled quicker than tube and fitting and it has less components so it is safer. The Layher Modular System provided access for 5 specialist trades working simultaneously on a scaffold that PHD designed and engineered to take ‘12 working levels’ thus speeding up handover & delivery.

CHALLENGES

The Façade was a progressive stone banding installation supporting some areas of brickwork and there were 3 variants of cladding finishes, this meant all stone banding had to be progressively installed and we could only tie through the expansion joints. PHD engineered a specialist tie to minimise the penetration, resulting in no protruding tubes. This also minimised the need for any repair work once the scaffold was removed.
