Restoration of Stoke Rochford Hall

Contractor: Austin Newport / Scaffolding Contractor: Harsco (then SGB)

Grade 1 Listed Stoke Rochford Hall in Lincolnshire was a fine Jacobean Revival building until a fire, starting in the roof, all but destroyed it in 2005.  Harsco (then SGB), appointed as scaffold contractor during the restoration works, knew that a partnership approach with HAKI would be essential to develop the right scaffold solution for the fragile structure.


The HAKITEC 750 temporary roof system ensured that safe weather protection was provided for the duration of the contract.  The roof allowed easy access of maintenance to the site while its speed of erection had a direct impact on the project cost.


The HAKITEC 750 roof was attached to a scaffold system 35m above ground level, creating a span of 28m.  There was no room for sections of the roof to be pre-built and craned into position so HAKI's unique roll-out method was employed.  This meant that the system could be erected from a safe working platform at one end of the building and progressively rolled out into place.  With a small number of lightweight components utilising aluminium lattice beams and high grade steel lacing frames, HAKI sheets are pulled through tracks from one side to the other, eliminating the need to access the roof structure and therefore avoiding the risk of falls from height.


SGB's John Beeston said:  "HAKI formed a partnership with us to help us understand how the solution would work and helped us to formulate the scaffolding strategy for presentation to the client.  We had a significant amount of support from HAKI who were able to advise at all points on the benefits the system would bring to the project.  In the end what we were able to present was by no means the cheapest of solutions but it was the option that presented the client with the best solution based on performance."


Major Benefits:

  • Installation up to five times faster than conventional methods.
  • Well lit enclosed area forms an excellent working environment.
  • Erecting the roof in modules, which are progressively rolled into position, eliminates the need to climb onto the structure - a major health and safety benefit.
  • Any roof section can be safely opened at random to enable access and carriage of materials.
