Appointed to design and install multiple craneable scaffolding stairway towers to one of Sydney’s most significant infrastructure projects. Sydney Metro Northwest is an under-construction rapid transit link to the north-western suburbs of Sydney, New South Wales. Australia. The Northwest Metro is being managed by Transport for New South Wales and is proposed to connect Rouse Hill to Chatswood via Castle Hill and Epping.
The ever-changing access requirements on site were the inspiration for the design. That allows for quick and efficient relocation of the towers at short notice.
Craneable Scaffolding Solution
Australian Scaffolds technical team designed a remarkable craneable scaffold stair tower solution. Using intelligent connection technology and high load-bearing capacity diagonal braces brought this lateral-thinking solution to a practical conclusion.
Built horizontally on the ground in our yard at Riverstone NSW and lifted by two forklifts onto a semi-trailer and transported to the site. A crane picked & placed the craneable scaffold into the required position on site enabling subsequent relocation’s of the structure also involved crane-handling and were remarkably straightforward. This practical solution offered the client speed of assembly, saving labour costs and avoided risks associated with working at height.
Director of Australian Scaffolds Daniel Butlin said, “We were able to completely relocate this 12m high craneable scaffold access stair in under 2 hours with only two men”. Crane-handling significantly reduced onsite safety risks including, saving all parties the time involved in the conventional dismantle and re-installation of scaffolding resulting in minimal site disruption. A great job displayed by the Australian Scaffold team!
