Kwik-Klik has installed a bespoke hoarding on the 46th Floor of the Leadenhall Building, the towering new landmark building in the City of London.
A robust floor-to-ceiling hoarding was needed to allow the 46th Floor to be extensively refurbished before replacement glazing is fitted to the building's exterior.
The Kwik-Klik team fitted a Soundmaster hoarding two feet in from the edge of the building. Panels were cut down to 2m heights before being taken up in the service lift. An H-section channel was installed at 2m high to allow the top half of each panel to be positioned up to the full ceiling height amongst the ducting, service cables and rafters.
A scissor lift was used to safely complete the weatherproof hoarding. The hoarding creates a secure work area that will allow internal works and external glazing work to be carried out independently of each other.

Kwik-Klik's Matthew Papworth said "This is another example of Kwik-Klik's versatility. When the main contractor explained the situation and the location, we found a way to establish a bespoke hoarding that allowed them to keep their work on programme."
