Stony Stratford High Street Project

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.

Newlands Marina Project

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been tasked to assist with the construction of a new Facilities Building at the Newlands Inland Marina, which is currently under construction.  The Marina will be the central feature of a new housing development of over 2000 mixed use residences, creating a “high quality urban waterside” which has been awarded to Crest Nicholson.

The Facilities Building which we are working on, will be purpose built to provide showers and laundry facilities for boaters and the marina will provide moorings and a turning area for those boating along the adjacent Grand Union Canal, which extends from London to Birmingham.

The one hundred and seventeen birth Marina and Facilities Building, will be part of a larger development which will include mixed private and social housing and amenities such as restaurants, nursery and pubs.  The new development is scheduled for completion in the Autumn of 2019.
