Scaffolding Cathedral Spire

Upright Access Systems were contracted to provide safe access to the spire of the Cathedral of St Patricks and St Joseph in Auckland.

Cathedral scaffold access

Mick Curran of Upright Access Systems said “the Layher Allround scaffolding system worked really well on this project.” Mick went on to say, “it was quite difficult to connect the scaffold above the new roof while staying off it. The Layher design team helped us with developing a plan for the scaffold to come off the concrete parapets, utilising Layher’s Aluminium Beams.”

Mick continued, “we also used a Layher 200 Hoist and left this on site for the contractors to use. The client commented that the scaffold gave good access to the workface.”

Great learning experience

In conclusion Mick said, “the whole job took about eight weeks, with the erection process taking about three and a half weeks, as we had to stop on several days due to the church being used for funerals and weddings. It was a challenging job, but a great learning experience for our scaffolders.”
