After a frantic call looking for a solution to get welders over the bow of a Sandfords fishing boat in port at the viaduct due to a  recent storm, I decided to erect a hanging scaffold off the deck with the platform about a metre off the water line. We erected the scaffold just as the sun came up and dismantled it the same day just as the sun went down. Sandfords were absolutely delighted with not only the service but the way we were able to construct what they though was to be a near impossible task.

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 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.
