MACQUARIE CENTRE ESCALATOR VOID

One of Sydney's largest retail shopping centres, The Macquarie Centre, required a simple access solution to complete work on the ceilings above the escalator voids in the shopping centre. The solution needed to span across an elliptical shaped void of several metres, and be quick to install so as to minimise customer disruption.

Australian Scaffolds used Layher Allround Scaffold to install a 7m x 7m mobile, single-span scaffold which allowed safe and easy access to the ceilings. The structure was installed in a single 4-hour shift, which minimised disruption for the centre.

Australian Scaffolds specialises in innovative solutions to meet any challenges. Our design team have extensive experience in designing solutions both indoors and outdoors that meet and exceed requirements and expectations.

LAYHER CRANEABLE STAIR TOWER

"Australian Scaffold were appointed to design and install a scaffold stairway tower to provide access to one of the largest infrastructure projects in the Sydney area. The ever-changing access requirements on site were the inspiration for a design that would allow for the quick and efficient relocation of the tower at short notice.


Australian Scaffold, together with Layher’s technical team, designed a remarkable craneable Layher Allround stair tower solution. Layher’s intelligent connection technology, combined with the high load-bearing capacity of Layher Allround’s diagonal braces brought this lateral-thinking solution to a practical conclusion: the 12m high stairway tower was assembled horizontally, then simply lifted by crane and placed in the required position on site. Subsequent relocations of the structure also involve crane-handling and were remarkably straightforward. This impressive solution offered the client speed of assembly, saving in labour costs and avoided risks associated with working at height.


Daniel Butlin, Director of Australian Scaffold, commented “We were able to completely relocate this 12m high Layher Allround access stair in under 2 hours, with only 2 men. Crane-handling not only significantly reduced the risks, but also saved all parties the time that would be involved in the conventional strip and re-erection of scaffolding. There was minimal site disruption”.
A great job displayed by the Australian Scaffold team!"

scaffold for hire - Australian Scaffolds

25 METRE STAIR TOWER

When Australia’s largest telecommunications provider Telstra required expert advice on a difficult job they called Australian Scaffolds.

Telstra needed a stair tower built 25 metres high around a 0.8m2 antenna pole with a footprint of only 2.5 x 2.5m and with a cantilevered platform at 24m high extending out from the scaffold to 4 x 4m. The pre requisites were that there were to be no lap board and no ladders used. Telstra deemed lapboards were a potential trip hazard and climbing up and down 30m of ladders with hand tools was dangerous.

After an initial site inspection and confirmation that the foundation would be able to take the weight of the scaffold it was determined it would be possible if we used Layher Allround Scaffold. Preliminary drawings and construction time’s estimates were prepared by Australian Scaffolds estimator showing no trip hazards and 2m stair sections.

The Job ran smoothly with no problems and was completed as per plan, on time and built to meet & exceed all specifications. Construction time was an only 1 day x 6 men which is a fantastic result showing that years of experience can solve even the most complex job.

Scaffolding design

COCA-COLA BOTTLE BLAST

Coca Cola the world’s leading soft drink producer wanted a custom built giant inflatable structure with internal scaffold stairs which would span across three different heights and tour Australian beaches in 2010.

Australian Scaffolds were called after Coca Cola were told by other Industry suppliers that it would be impossible to build the internal structure in the limited space available, meet Australian Standards and be ready to go in 6 weeks.

 The expert design team at Australian Scaffolds got to work straight away and came up with a solution that met the needs of Coca Cola & all safety requirements.

Testing was completed at Australian Scaffolds yard before the structure was transported around Australia with two scaffolders installing & dismantling at each capital city.

Next time you hear it cannot be done call Australian Scaffolds on 1300 919 905 and let our design team show you that it can.

 

Type A Hoarding for hire - Australian Scaffolds

TYPE A HOARDING

One Call Building Services a remedial builder from NSW required a scaffold and type A hoarding installed on a Sydney City Council footpath.

The scaffold needed to be 10 metres high and over the front of 3 shops. Customers had to have access at all times whilst work was being undertaken above. Any scaffold on public land requires a development application submitted to council before approval.

Australian Scaffolds was able to take care of all the paper work, drawings and pedestrian traffic management plans required by Sydney City Council for One Call Building Services. And the great news was that the shops were able to stay open not only during the construction of the scaffold and type A hoarding but also during the ongoing remedial repairs to the building.

Australian Scaffolds has full public liability insurance, work certified to WorkCover NSW, OH&S standards and the experience in liaising with councils in a fast and efficient manner for all scaffolds and type A hoardings.

8M CRANEABLE STAIR TOWER

The RIX Group who specialises in shotcreting, specialist contracting and civil construction projects to the mining industry required stair access down into an 8m hole.

The challenge that the RIX Group faced was that the only way in to the hole was by crane.

As not all scaffolds were created equal, Australian Scaffolds expert design team used Layher Allround for this project. Designing a stair tower that was built in Australian Scaffolds yard and transported to site and then placed in the hole by crane was the perfect solution.

The stair tower design allowed for offsite construction and only a 20 minute install onsite. A record time that was appreciated by The RIX Group.

LAKE TAUPO CYCLE CHALLENGE BRIDGE

Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge asked Euro Scaffolds to construct a bridge over State Highway 1 to enable the mountain bikers to return to their finish line.

Last year the 300 or so riders racing to the finish had to negotiate their way through the traffic at the main round-about in town.

The bridge was built the day before the event with the centre section craned in at 5.30am. Despite initial beliefs that the road would need to be closed for some time, this operation took less than 2 minutes with minimum delay to traffic.
