Scaffold support for Mencap project

TBF Scaffolding was asked by SEH French Construction to help build a new workshop for Genesis Orwell Mencap’s Green Bike Project – and the TBF team happily did so. (Pictured above – the topping out ceremony, featuring our scaffold! Photo from SEH French.).

The Green Bike project teaches adults with learning disabilities to repair bicycles, providing valuable work experience, encouraging green practices, and raising money for Mencap. It launched in 2008, in Holywells Park, before moving to its current address in Wright Road in 2020.

The not-for-profit build was handled by SEH French, supported by KLH Architects, Superstructures, Jarrods, and TBF Scaffolding. Ipswich Borough Council, which owns the land, also supported the social enterprise.

The new workshop was officially opened on 18 January by Ipswich Town Football Club’s CEO Mark Ashton.
