Circular lighthouse scaffolding
Insta Group have recently undertaken a series of repair and refurbishment projects in Victoria where a versatile approach was a prerequisite. Insta Group’s use of their Layher Allround Scaffolding certainly met this requirement.
Working closely with Insta Group, Layher’s technical team produced a design to overcome the challenges presented by the circular shape of this lighthouse.
However, despite the careful design work, the practical base-out requirements on site had to address some unexpected obstacles. These problems were solved quickly by the combination of skilful work by the Insta Group team, and the versatility of their Layher Allround equipment. The result is a spectacular project in a pristine location on the Victorian coastline.
Thank you to Insta Group for use of these photos.
