Law Russell House

The Project

Law Russell House is situated on the corner of Vicar Lane and Field Street in Little Germany, Bradford. A Grade II listed building, built in 1873 as one of the city’s original textile warehouse buildings, it boasts some of Bradford’s finest architecture.

A renovation project started in to 2016 to transform the building into a residential development, creating modern city centre accommodation in the form of studio, as well as one and two bedroom apartments.

The Brief

JRM Scaffolding began work on the project in early 2017. Our brief was to build a scaffolding platform that would support construction workers converting this commercial property into 69 separate units.

Constructing the platform required extensive scaffolding around the entire building, the front of Law Russell House being a dominant corner around two streets. On top of this, the property is in the heart of Bradford’s busy retail and commercial sector. It was vital our scaffolding platform was built with minimum disruption to pedestrians in the hustle and bustle of city centre life below.

Our work included scaffolding that supported the outer walls whilst construction work was carried out on the building. Allowing construction workers and tradesmen to complete the project on a safe and secure platform.

The Result

After four weeks, our team of highly qualified scaffolders had the majority of the building surrounded by scaffold.

After seven weeks, we finally had the building fully covered in scaffolding and debris netting, allowing other trades to carry out their works safely.

JRM Scaffolding, helping to create a stunning new building in Bradford whilst keeping its heritage intact for all to enjoy.
