Location: Chatsworth House
Chatsworth House is a stately home located in Derbyshire, within the Derbyshire Dales. It is the seat of the Duke of Devonshire and has been home to the Cavendish family since 1549, being one the finest examples of stately homes and estates within the UK. For those who have not visited, we can vouch that it’s a great day out to be had for all!
The Initial Problem
The craftsmen wanted to get as close to the windows at high level, on two elevations of the house. The craftsman and gilders were required to work over and around obstacles at the given location. Their aim was to complete their tasks at height to the highest of standards (to be official, the royal standard).
The ‘Lifterz’ Solution
The Teupen Leo 23GT spider lift enabled the craftsman to reach up and over all obstacles and elevations, enabling the guild part of the works to be completed safely and most efficiently. With low-bearing pressure and a fantastic climbing potential, the Leo 23GT was able to track in and around the gardens and across areas at the perimeter, to access all elevations of this amazing estate home. Importantly, this method was over ten fold cheaper than the quotation provided for specialist scaffold, furthermore, the house and grounds were kept in operation for tourists and visitors – with no eye sores in terms of permanent scaffolding on their photographs!
RP, the main craftsman involved in the works outlined by saying ‘this method of working at height cannot be beaten or improved. For this application, the equipment supplied by Lifterz – East Midlands was perfect. More importantly, we as an organisation received a great customer experience, having dedicated and knowledgeable staff on hand throughout the hire’.
