Active Platforms has recently changed its name to Above Scaffolding because, as Managing Director Brian Whelan explains “We feel it more clearly reflects our vision and reputation”.

This hanging scaffold installation, erected for Sydney Trains over Salt Pan Creek at Riverwood, NSW, is a case in point.

The scaffold had to provide fully contained access to the steel bridge girders and track level walkways while allowing for the girders and walkway on one side to be completely removed and replaced.

Bring on the Skyhooks! Owen McGuigan, Above Scaffoldingís senior design engineer explains “The versatility and strength-to-weight ratio of Layher Allround, in conjunction with our custom suspension components, and Layherís aluminium lattice beams creates more possibilities when tackling these challenging projects”.

The Sydney Trainsí project team are more than happy with the solution. In the words of Ben Schipp, Sydney Trainsí Project Engineer: “Thank you for your effort with this project. Iíve had a lot of good feedback regarding the design, quality and workmanship of the scaffold. Furthermore, your guys on site did a great job.”

Thank you to Brian Whelan for use of these photos.
