Christchurch Airport Project Roof

Geeves Scaffolding built a Keder XL roof for Leighs Construction at Christchurch Airport. The roof had to span 22m and sat on top of an existing roof on three sides. The worksite was above the check-in area in the airport and so weathertightness was critical. There were also issues around snow loading, wind uplift and the capacity of the existing roofs to take the load.

Pull back roof

The client was very happy with the end result, particularly the ability to pull back the Keder roof sheets to load in steel and roofing iron. Thanks to Layher and Don Thomson engineers for their input into the project.
