This project required the installation of a new ventilation system in a power supply building for a major transport company.
A careful and precise scaffold design was required due to the extremely sensitive nature of the working area. We built a scaffold over transformers which have an input current of 22 kva and re-distributed at 12 kva, which in turn supplies a whole network. We worked in collaboration with G. W. Coote to plan and design the scaffold carefully as we had a minimal floor area to construct from. Aluminium beams were connected to support towers to span the transformers and create a heavy duty protection deck. The scaffold was then raised progressively to create a working deck to enable the old existing fans, which weighed 500kg, each to be dismantled and removed, ready for the installation of the new fans and motors.
