Marine Scaffolding Auckland

All Scaffolding Marine Scaffolding

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.

We received a call from a land developer this week who explained that they had a really sloping section that was due to be auctioned this weekend. They wanted to be able to cater for those who wanted to get a feel for what the outlook might be from a building on the site.

After a 10 minute phone call of brainstorming I came up with the idea of building a scaffold with a large platform just around the same height as were the potential properties deck / living room would be built to show potential buyers of the views etc. We also attached the structure to the level ground with a 15 metre walk way for access suitable for wheelchair access.

Our client was very happy with the end product and interested purchasers were able to truly appreciate the site's potential.
