This project required careful design and engineering in order to protect the heritage listed structure.
In order to gain access to the copper dome and cross we designed and built a 43 meter cantilever as scaffold with a Layher system scaffold.
The client requested a quick turnaround so we built a stair access scaffold in 5 by 8 meter sections which were constructed on the ground and craned up, this was done over two working days.
The dome section at the top of the scaffold was built as one complete structure and lifted 41 metres into place.
Scaff-Co supply scaffold labour and hire for; Kwikstage, tube and Layher scaffold in Melbourne and greater Victoria.
The Ukranian Catholic Church project required an intricate scaffold because of the roof's hooped fiberglass design which was non load bearing. As a solution Scaff-co designed and built a tube and fitting scaffold with double spurred legs.
The base of the dome and tube and fitting scaffold as pictured is 8 sided and laps around the dome corners, the scaffold is completed with a neat finish and compliant with AS/NZS 4576.
Construction of the boiler scaffold at the Loy Yang Power station (as pictured) required 180 tonnes of scaffold. The structure was erected under heavy time constraints in a record 4 shifts.
As per photo above, this was a hanging scaffold erected in order to access a pipe 60 metres above the ground with no access below.
See photo above of a sloping wall scaffold built by Scaff-Co. This structure was necessary in order to provide a base for the boiler safety deck and internal boiler scaffold.
The 150 year old Winchelsea bridge required a delicate and intricate structure which, as per client request, would not disturb the moss and stone work.
A mixture of Layher beams, tube and fitting helped span the three arches of the historic bridge over the Barwon river.
The Tiger Tower project was a heavily engineered scaffold. The structure was necessary in order to demolish the old water tower.
The scaffold stood forty meters high, was free standing and as a requirement of the client's engineering team could hold 120 tonne.
For the Myer Emporium facade restoration project, scaffolding was built along the entire length's of Little Bourke and Lonsdale streets. The scaffold is built through a purpose made gantry which held up the original fascade.
Scaff-co has continually completed successfull projects for temporary structures at the Australian Grand Prix since 2012.
