Project: Hawker jet fighter simulators
Project Value to Cheshire Scaffolds Ltd: £60k
Main Contractor: CAE (UK) plc and MoD
Main Contract Value: top secret
Cheshire Scaffolds was invited to design and erect an access scaffold to the inside and outside of the simulator housing which is situated in the newly built squadron building at RAF Valley, Anglesey.
Some of the obstacles that Cheshire Scaffolds had to overcome were that the base materials for the simulator were fibreglass and the simulator was built completely circular. The client also required a completely level area to all elevations and a gap of 150m to the inside face and the outside face. Our in-house joiner achieved this by applying a plywood level to the top of the scaffold platform.
