The Blenheim Post Office was built circa 1970. Under new ownership by Rangitane Iwi, it has undergone a much needed full interior and exterior refurbishment.
Scaffold Marlborough was asked by the exterior main contractor to supply them with a good working platform, so that essential earthquake maintenance could be done. An exterior refurbishment of repainting the roof and exterior framework was to be done at the same time.
To keep costs down, each face of the building was scaffolded individually. As the construction and painting teams worked their way top to bottom on each face, the scaffold was erected and dismantled; then re-erected on the next face as needed.
