recent work

Latest projects we worked on

Our approach to Safety & Quality has proven to be the main focus of our success. Here are a few projects we’ve worked on.

85m Superyacht – Full scaffolding encapsulation

Shipyard - Malta

Makaw Scaffolding was entrusted with the design and installation of a fully certified scaffolding structure, consuming in excess of over 200 tons of Layher allround scaffolding equipment. This comprehensive system was augmented by an overlying temporary roofing structure, meticulously engineered to encapsulate this magnificent megayacht using thermoplastic shrink wrap in preparation for a full spray job. Our specialized team at Makaw Scaffolding orchestrated an efficient process, from the initial design phase to the seamless delivery and execution of the project. The result was a fully certified and weatherproof scaffolding structure, providing safe access around all sides of the vessel and achieving a remarkable completion time of just 21 working days from project commencement. Makaw Scaffolding's commitment to excellence and expertise ensured the successful and timely execution of this project, underscoring our ability to deliver reliable and complex scaffolding solutions for the superyacht/maritime industry.

76m Superyacht – Full scaffolding encapsulation complete with temporary roof structure

Shipyard - Malta

Makaw Scaffolding was entrusted with the full scaffold access and encapsulation of a 76-meter superyacht to facilitate its comprehensive spray job. Using Layher allround scaffolding equipment, we designed and constructed a robust scaffold structure, which was then roofed with our temporary roofing system, boasting an impressive 18-meter freestanding span, all enclosed under 1,400m2 of durable tarpaulin sheeting. Additionally, our solution provided safe access for third parties to work around the full vessel perimeter. Various access staircase points were strategically incorporated to accommodate tradesmen and crew alike operating on the vessel. The scaffolding package for this project was efficiently completed within 18 working days by our specialized scaffolding team located at a local shipyard in Malta.

82m superyacht – scaffold encapsulation

shipyard - Malta

Makaw Scaffolding was entrusted with the scaffolding construction and encapsulation to provide safe access and containment using thermoplastic shrink wrap for a partial spray job on this 82m superyacht. The scaffolding structure set up using Layher allround equipment was full set up in just 15 days from commencement.

Trussout scaffold – Odycy hotel Malta

Odycy hotel - Qawra Malta

Makaw Scaffolding was approached to provide a cantilevered solution for a challenging project involving the scaffolding enclosure of a hotel perimeter during the construction of additional storeys. Our team efficiently deployed over 450 running meters of trussed-out scaffold, supported by 380 750mm X beams. This extensive setup facilitated the safe and certified installation of over 7,000m2 of overlying Layher allround scaffolding, adjusted gradually to align with construction progress and concurrent finishing tasks. Makaw Scaffolding's precise execution and strategic planning ensured the seamless completion of this complex project, showcasing our proficiency in delivering effective solutions for intricate construction requirements.

Plaza shopping centre – suspended scaffolding platform


This suspended scaffolding platform covering a footprint of 300m2 was engineered and certified for safe access over one of Malta's busiest shopping centre's atrium, facilitating the replacement of the existing roof structure by third-party contractors. The suspended structure was constructed by means of support structures constructed on either side of the atrium with scaffold lattice beams spanning a stretch of 15.00m in length in order to bridge the distance required safely over the underlying areas.

34m yacht – Scaffold encapsulation

Shipyard - Malta
