    Project Name: Imperial College – Scale Space

    Location: Imperial College, White City, London, W12 7TA

    Project Scope: Imperial College London and digital venture builder Blenheim Chalcot announced a joint venture to build “Scale Space”, a 200,000 sq ft new technology and innovation centre, on the south of the site.

    As well as providing space for new, high-growth technology companies, the £50 million Scale Space will house parts of Imperial and many of Blenheim Chalcot’s businesses.

    Welcoming the announcement of the joint venture, Matt Hancock MP, said:

    “This ambitious project will help cement London’s position as Europe’s tech capital and is another vote of confidence in our world-leading digital economy.  We’re determined to make the UK the best place to start and grow a digital business, so it’s fantastic to see these two established institutions coming together to help the next generation of innovative talent flourish.”

    Whilst for the public, the new building is a stunning piece of modern architecture, behind a louvred stood a health and safety headache. Like most large newly constructed buildings, the roof space of the Scale Space is a warren of air conditioning units, ventilation ducts, as well as pipework and electrical cables; navigating this space for maintenance staff could be potentially perilous. That is why Ezi Klamp were called to provide a solution to help workers navigate their way around the hazards. 

    For Ezi Klamp, the solution was simple, combining their non-destructive and permanent roof guard solutions with their Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) grating to provide safe walkways for workers. These solutions provided freestanding stepovers for the larger obstacles. These included a small step-up and Folding Grab Bar for the Roof Hatch, a small cable tray Step Over and two larger Step Overs with platforms and handrails on both sides.

    Whether you are looking for a fast and effective solution to provide safe access to your roof or a bespoke solution to your needs, Ezi Klamp has over 20 years of experience providing access, edge protection and Boundary fencing solutions.
