Pilosio has helped restoration company Dottor Group complete to convert the Palazzo Papadopoli in Venice into a 24-suite luxury hotel.

Work commenced in 2011 and was completed 18 months later. Around 100 employees a day worked on the construction site.

Pilosio used its MP multidirectional scaffolding, which is hot dip galvanized. The system had a 23 m base and 31 m height.

A cantilever structure was also built, made up of trusses, tube and joint elements to create sufficient support for the fa├žade scaffolding and allow work to be carried out on the Palazzo Papadopoli's two top pinnacles.

In the mezzanine area, a working floor was created around the perimeter and one at the top. The internal maintenance scaffolding for work on a 16th century stairwell and a 19th century stairwell, were made also up of steel elements from the MP multidirectional system.

Supplementing the MP multidirectional system was the QS mobile tower system on wheels from Lama, part of the Pilosio Group, which was used for internal works on historical artefacts, such as paintings, plasters, pictorial layers and stucco.
