Kila Kokonut Krew Factory Set


Back to the stage we go after lengthy talks with the production department of the Factory, a story of oppression of the Polynesian community when they first arrived on our shores and how they were exploited by wealthy business men as cheap labour.

All Scaffolding Stage Scaffolding Killer Kokonut

All Scaffolding along with the designer came up with a design that will be able to travel the globe whilst on tour for the next twelve months.


The show hits Australia and Europe so the scaffold we designed had to be able to be moved around the stage freely and be a system that could be sourced anywere, so of course it had to be good old Kwikstage with a few little tweeks.

The show runs at the Vodafone event centre in south Auckland for a week.

Marine Scaffolding Auckland

We received a call with a frantic voice at the end of the line saying that they had a rush job on a fishing boat due to leave for Wellington on Saturday. So we mustered the troops for a 4 am start to get the welders onboard for an 8am start. We then returned on a Saturday to take down the canterlever just as the painter got off board - the paint was still wet!

The vessel then got under way on the out going tide.

It was the quick reaction time and willingness to go the extra mile to help that won us this scaffolding installation.

Balcony Repairs Part II


Stage 2 commenced at the central Auckland hotel this week.

This stage was a little more difficult than the last due having to erect the support and access towers off a veranda roof. So we had to look at directing the load of not only the crumbling balcony and the work men (live load ) but the scaffold (dead load ) back down to the ground.

In this case we back propped the veranda roof.

This worked exceptionally well and is in use as I write...

Industrial Maintenance Scaffold

 The request came in on Monday for a rather a large scaffolding job over a conveyor that carries plastic bottles at Visy Recyling in Albany on Auckland's North Shore.

The scaffold ended up being over 30 metres long and 8 metres high in places, with the purpose of the scaffold being to pull one fibre optic cable along a cable tray. The scaffold will be up for one day, followed by 2 days of dismantling.

Balcony Repairs

Early last week we received a frantic call from a hotelier in Auckland CBD.balcony repair scaffold

The hotel had a major problem with a balcony that had broken bits of concrete that had fallen on to a pedestrian walk way below.

We visited site and quoted for a 20 metre high scaffold tower with the ability to shore up to the underside and give access for working on for the repairs.

Whilst on site I notice that there was another balcony with exactly the same problem luckily this one was over waste ground so we formed a protection fan to guard the footpath nearby.
