On a Bovis Lend Lease site in Sydney’s busy George Street, Above Scaffolding have built a façade scaffold with a difference. The façade scaffold is 14m wide x 18m high and is supported on twin 750 lattice girders cantilevered off a birdcage scaffold in the atrium and extending out over the construction zone in the heart of the CBD.
The scaffold was pre-assembled in 4m high sections which were then craned into position. The structural capacity of the Layher lattice girders and the capability to install pre-assembled scaffold modules using the crane allowed the scaffold to be erected during normal hours with no interruption to traffic or risk to the public.
