The Challenge:

Design and install four, 20-metre high, partially encapsulated scaffolds, on uneven ground in high-wind locations.

The Detail:

The challenges on this project for Connetics and Orion were many! It took the experience and design expertise of Upright and scaffold system manufacturer, Layher’s design team to develop a scaffold that met environmental requirements and allowed the local power supply to be maintained.

Upright elected to use the Layher Allround scaffold system for its fitting accuracy, light weight and ease of installation. The later was critical for the team to meet tight time frames

Each tower was partially clad at the top to provide a weather-tight environment for crews working on the scaffold. Achieving a safe result in a high-wind zone took some smart engineering and careful planning.
