Aquatic Centre Case Study

SCA’s Shrink Wrap Division play crucial role in the Legacy works taking place once the 2012 Olympic Games had finished

Having played a part in the London 2012 Games construction process, the SCA Group have been delighted to return to site and assist in Legacy works, on what is now a world-famous, landmark project.

ENJ Scaffolding, working closely with Balfour Beatty, appointed SCA Group team because of the fire retardant qualities of the containment employed. The project involved removal of the Aquatic Centre seats and sections of the exterior walls so floor to ceiling glass panels can be installed. Capacity is being reduced from the original Games purpose so the building is fit for future use.

SCA Group shrink wrapped the scaffolding, creating protective partitions around the exposed exterior face while demolition works were carried out to the exterior of the building. Our product ensures the pool and other internal areas remain clean and free of construction debris.

SCA Group adapted the shrink wrap installation to work within the contours of the structure within this unusual eye shaped building. The project was completed on time and to an extremely high standard, and will remain on site for the best part of an entire year. Given the durability of our product, there will be only a slim possibility of repair works in this period.
