BMH Scaffolding, part of the Phoenix Brickwork group of companies, has recently started work on a new £1.2m contract win to supply extensive scaffolding services for a major new Build to Rent project in Edgbaston, Birmingham.

Within a week of appointment, teams from BMH Scaffolding began installation on this huge residential and retail block, to ensure that the full structure would be ready for the next phase.

The scaffolding element is scheduled to take 52 weeks of the overall 138-week construction plan and is challenging in both timings and scale. The project involves in excess of 1000 tonnes of independent scaffolding with loading bays and stair towers – installed up to 18 storeys high.

“With a project of this size, it’s important to make a fast and efficient start. Our expert team of almost two dozen scaffolders is already delivering impressive progress in all areas, to make sure that multiple elevations are ready, in time for the next stages of construction.”

Phoenix Brickworks’ Chairman celebrates this impressive new win for his group. With a turnover now exceeding £25m, Phoenix Brickwork is fast becoming a key player in the national sub-contracting landscape.

“This is yet another terrific win for BMH Scaffolding, part of the Phoenix Brickwork group of companies, demonstrating the breadth and depth of our offering to main contractors, and our ability to handle ever-larger projects.

“Our growth across the country continues from North to South, despite the challenges of Covid restrictions, and is testament to the quality, expertise and industry knowledge of our workforce.”

Phoenix Brickwork, which was established in 2010, has grown organically and by acquisition. The group secured its first £1m contract in 2015. The company has expanded its range of services to include brickwork, scaffolding and drywalling services.

Phoenix Brickwork continued to develop its relationships with major contractors across the country. The company has also secured accreditation from a wide range of organisations – including Constructionline Gold, FIRAS, CHAS, Achilles and Investors in People.
