British Museum Renovation

Apollo Scaffold Services supplied the 750mm X-Beams which formed a temporary roof structure for renovation work on the iconic British Museum in London.

The temporary roof was constructed to enable the installation of a new copper roof on the building's portico.
This temporary structure was required to move up and down in high winds to reduce the loads transferred to the neo-classical building which dates back to 1753.

An additional challenge was to ensure that the museum remained open to the public, and to aid this, the scaffolding was concealed behind printed PVC sheeting colour matched to the building's Portland stone, which was one of the largest building wraps in the UK.

The project proved such a success that contractor WellMax Scaffolding were awarded Project of the Year at the 2021 Construction News Specialist Awards.
