Vertimax Australia was engaged to replace 46 panels of glass panels and re-caulk the entire Atrium roof on completion.
The project being a design and construct, seen us design, manufacture and install three purpose built lifting gantries to be placed across the Atrium sections to allow for the glass to be safely lifted in and out of position.
The works further included designing and installing a suitable height safety anchor point on the apex of the small and large domes along with an access methodology to gain safe access to the apex itself.
Complexities around the works evolved due to the restricted structural capabilities of the original framework and that the actual glass changing had to be completed after hours. This required re thinking of the gantries design and overall construction methodologies.
Works due to be completed in February 2020.
