Efficiencies on shut-downs
Remarkable efficiency was achieved by Ausscaff with their provision of access for shutdown remediation works on this project. Using laser scanning technology, Ausscaff produced a clever design incorporating their Layher Allround Scaffolding, together with Layher’s FW Bridging System, to achieve impressive 20m spans.
Incorporating crane-handling in the methodology allowed pre-built structures to be lifted into position when required: machine outage time was reduced by 6 shifts. The long spans of the structure also meant only one subsequent adjustment for paint pick-ups – compared to the 10 adjustments required with a conventional scaffolding solution.
Ausscaff’s Operations Manager, Russell Counsell, observed: “We thoroughly enjoy combining our experience, our expertise and our Layher Allround systems to demonstrate to our clients our ability to make the impossible possible!”
