Queen Elizabeth II School, Hexham

ISS were the preferred scaffolding contractor to build a new education campus in Hexham.

Comprising an extensive new-build project and the retention of the Grade II listed Hydro building, the scheme involved designing many complex scaffolds including supporting the existing building.

The Grade II listed Hydro building was to be retained and the new buildings developed to its rear – with the middle school to the south and high school to the north, adjoining the existing Hydro building.

ISS worked hand-in hand with our client, often working outside normal working hours, and designed many complex scaffolds, including support scaffolds and truss-outs that enabled works to progress below, therefore cutting any lost time or programme overrun.

“ISS have provided a range of services at Hexham Schools, but for me what makes them stand out is their technical knowledge temporary works design which is amongst the best I’ve seen. and professionalism”
