Example text

The internal structure and majority of the building fabric is demolished to make way for a new structure behind the retained (historic) façade. Removing the main structural and lateral support (walls and floors) from the façade will render it unstable. A temporary support system must be put in place to hold the façade firmly in place while the existing structure is removed and the new structure installed. The temporary support system must be able to provide the necessary lateral stability and resist wind loads.

Where protective sheeting is used (discussed later), extra ties will be needed to transfer the wind loads. Ties can, and often do, obstruct work. For example, it may not be possible to fit windows where a through tie is fitted. Before any ties are removed, the scaffold design must be checked to ensure that it will remain stable while the tie is temporarily removed or repositioned. Weather protection – scaffold sheetings Protective sheeting is tied to the scaffold structure to provide some protection to the workers and the building works from wind and rain.

This may be all of the existing walls, or in some cases, it may be as little as one elevation of the building only.
