Project Description

July 2019 Hawthorn Estates carried out works at a Virgin Money Office in Chester.

The work that has been requested was to place 150+ picture frames on to a stairwell wall.

With the wall space and size of the picture frames to measure in it was more effective to use velcro strips to ensure the pictures would stay on the wall throughout the year, it provided more structured support and would ensure the desired symmetrical layout.

Scaffolding was required to stick higher pieces of velcro and pictures on to the wall.

Works were arranged out of hours so that an unvailing ceremony could be done for the staff.

Health and Safety

Due to the works needing to be done on a stairwell, correct safety equipment was required.

Scaffolding was erected so that safe access could be given to the wall.

Correct access equipment was used on all works, as well as all the necessary PPE to make the job safe and easier.

All personnel hold correct licences to use any and/or all the heavy machinery and have been given the correct training before any works.

Safety of staff and Tenants are always our priority, all safety precautions were put into place.


The tenants were very happy with the organisation and knowledge provided on this job. the staff members were extremely happy with the result on the day of the ceremony.
