Nomad Backpackers

Scope:

 1. The requirement for access by HBS Group was to allow for the inspection of the Bell Tower and Facades to determine their structural integrity and whether it posed a risk to the public.

Considerations:

 1. Creating an access platform, encapsulation, rope access anchor points & overhead protection for the public, whilst not adding load onto the tower or roof, so the design needed to be as low weight as possible.

 2. This was a Low Budget project so the need to produce the most appropriate  design was paramount.

Solution:

 1. Install a Allround cantilevered working platform anchored with cables at the roof level, Overhead protective fan from Level 1 and Guy cables with containment sheeting between the working platform & fan.

Result:

Inspection by rope was made easy by being able to move around the Bell tower at the roof level then drop vertically where needed.
