RESTORATION OF A MEDIEVAL BUILDING AT LINCOLN CATHEDRAL

Lincoln Cathedral is one of England’s grandest cathedrals dating back to 1072 when its construction started. Positioned next to the cathedral’s West Front is the Cathedral Centre which is a magnificent 14th century building.

The Cathedral Centre is used for events and also host the weekly Lincoln County Court. The age and fragile nature of the building required planned restoration and repair and, in February 2017, PMC Scaffold & Access were appointed to provide scaffold and access systems for this work.

Protecting the fabric of the building

There were strict guidelines on what we could and could not provide due to the buildings monument status so on this occasion PMC chose to use the plettac metrix system with its advanced guardrail for these works in conjunction with a fully designed weighted buttress.

Using the scaffold in this way meant we could leave the surface of the building free from installing positive ties further damaging the building and it also leaves a completely free surface for the renovations to be carried out on.
