Shrink wrap specialists Tufcoat have worked with Shadow Scaffolding to provide a weather protection system during works to the Brunswick House student accommodation building in Southampton.

The Tufcoat installation team carried out the scaffold encapsulation of the building, using over 2000m² of our 300µm flame retardant sheeting. This provided a weatherproof environment around the works taking place, preventing downtime that would have otherwise occurred from adverse conditions.

Our sheeting will be in use for approximately 6 months while works are carried out, and will contribute towards the accommodation being ready before for the start of the new University year in September 2015.
