Here at Coventry Scaffolding, we are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted in an esteemed group of four finalists in the 'Project of the Year (turnover up to £5 million)' category at the NASC Awards 2018. With the prestigious awards ceremony taking place on Friday 23 November at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh, anticipation is growing at the Coventry Scaffolding offices as we keep our fingers crossed!
Our nominated project, The London Mastaba, transformed the London skyline this summer, adding vivid colour and energy to the capital’s grey horizon. Floating on Hyde Park’s Serpentine Lake at 40m x 30m x 20m, the structure, which was conceptualised by world-renowned artist, Christo and his late wife Jeanne Claude, was formed of 7,506 horizontally stacked barrels and required the expertise of Coventry Scaffolding to deliver an infallible structural solution.
“We are thrilled to be finalists in this distinguished awards category,” comments Coventry Scaffolding’s Managing Director, Paul White. "So much of the fantastic work we do takes place in buildings, where advertising would not be appropriate, but this structure is something completely different from the norm. Just getting to the final is an achievement and makes us feel proud already, but to win it would be extra special and would be a reward for all the pre-planning that went into building this amazing work of art. However, the site team are the real stars and winning it would definitely be a pat on the back for them. Our sincerest congratulations go to all the other businesses who have made it to the finals!”
