Te Papa Maintenance Scaffold
Geeves Scaffolding were contracted to erect a free-standing scaffold for essential maintenance work on Te Papa in Wellington. Te Papa, with its 36,000 square metres of public floor space, has been open for over 20 years and maintenance work on a building of that size is well-managed and on-going.
Tim Geeves, Director of Geeves Scaffolding said “we used Layher Allround Scaffolding for its versatility and efficient assembly. The free-standing scaffold measured 20m high and 120m around the building, with 0.73m and 1.09m wide working platforms and backing (buttress) support bays. The support bays were constructed using Layher O-decks (hook decks) and no part of the scaffold touched the building, which was very different from similar maintenance scaffolds.”
The maintenance project was completed in 6 months.
