Melbourne GPO


 1. The requirement for Built was to provide access to redirect & install new escalators for the H&M fit out.

 2. Whilst not interfering with the businesses operating inside the GPO.


 1. The void space was 9m wide and 20m long with only 600mm of floor space around the outside due to temporary containment walls.


 1. Install a Allround Truss Birdcage supported on a Mezzanine level with access Level 1 & 2, the scaffold was completely contained from Level 1 allowing for the ground floor to be unaffected by the day works of the trades above.


Construction works were able to be performed during the day whilst businesses remained open removing the need for overtime works.
