Penzance Train Station
In early 2014 Britain was hit by severe winter storms and the South West took the brunt. All parts of Cornwall from the South/South West, to the North, got damaged. Which included our beautiful promenade in Penzance and the main railway line into the rest of Country, for which we were contacted by AMCO to help. The job began with an emergency scaffold bridge constructed to span a 90m gap of track that had been destroyed by the sea water so that services and signalling could resume. We also incorporated a cable ramp alongside the bridge for the cables to be moved into position and incorporated access stairs. The cables concerned were very important in connecting Cornwall to the rest of the country. These works then led on to several more scaffolding works for different contractors including giving access to the houses via pedestrian walkways so the residents could get access to their properties. We also scaffolded over 270m of edge protection along the sea wall and properties; site access scaffolds; scaffolds to fill the gap between the containers and the main breach; scaffolding over the containers where we had to overcome several hurdles including allowing the sea to run freely under the without disturbing the scaffolds’ stability.   
A scaffold inspector commented; “This is probably one of the best examples of best practice within our industry that I have seen. The quality of the scaffolding is of the highest degree”.

Penzance Train Station
We were given the exceptional project that is Penzance Train Station. We were asked by AMCO Rail to tender for the whole of the building inside and outside. The works were designed to provide access to the underside of the roof. The scaffolding was required to provide a scaffold working platform/crash deck erected inside the station building, spanning the tracks. Scaffolding access has also been erected on the outside of the station building. We decided to use the new Plettac system on this project. We had to overcome several obstacles such as public safety; track safety; access to the site; PTS and Plettac Training; medicals and D& A screening; new company policies for Network Rail and Link up status; importing the Plettac and PPE. We achieved all of these within 4 weeks.
