MK Scaffolding Project: Stony Stratford High Street, Milton Keynesshare

One of our most recent projects has been on our doorstep in Stony Stratford, where the renovation and refurbishment of several Grade II listed buildings has been under-way since 2017. One of the worst fires for centuries saw a 500-year old, three storey-house burn to the ground, taking a part of Stony Stratford’s history with it. The fire damaged the adjoining arcade shops and an adjacent wall collapsed, it was so badly damaged.

Many parties were involved in the rebuilding of the historic town house and adjoining properties, including the Milton Keynes Conservation office.The refurbishment work on the historic arcade was carried out by heritage experts Wilford & Dean and MK Scaffolding was tasked with supplying the scaffold and structures to carry out the careful renovation; which in the adjoining buildings, included rescuing the original fittings and fixtures.

The scaffolding used was extensive and included towers, platforms, birdcages and loading bays.  It was an intricate job spanning nearly eighteen months and requiring excellent team work with our client Wilford & Dean who have done a fantastic job of preserving the listed arcade, which dates back, to the mid-18th century.
