• Flying Shores

  • Flying shores are used to provide temporary support to two parallel walls, which otherwise may collapse. A flying shore consists of wall plates, struts, staining pieces, horizontal shores, needles wedges and cleats.

    Flying shores are most often used for supporting temporarily the parallel walls of two adjacent buildings where an intermediate building has to be demolished or rebuilt. Essentially the scaffold would be built through the middle and 'wedge' between the adjacent buildings.

    This is a specific high-end design element of the service we provide. Often, the use of flying shores will need to be constructed in line with planning regulations. Ducker & Young will deal with party wall agreements and liaise and consult with local councils on behalf of, or alongside our client.
