Students Use Scaffolding

Students use Scaffolding to build Urban Spa in a Mexican Park

We don’ t design urban spas but we do supply and fit safe, strong HSE approved scaffolding to our clients in Dublin, Meath, Louth, Carlow Kildare and all over Ireland!

Students from the Institute of Architecture and Design Chihuahua have used scaffolding, wood and fabric to turn a disused park fountain into a shaded urban spa for local residents (+ slideshow).

The temporary spa has been constructed around an existing fountain in Chihuahua’s central Urueta Park, and is formed of a circle of nine towers constructed from metal scaffolding bars.

Each of the towers is topped by a wooden canopy, composed of scaffolding boards, and is linked to the adjacent tower with a sheet of coloured fabric. A wooden walkway leads up to the fountain, and also encircles and gives access to the central water source.
