Manufacture and Retrofit / Installation of Twin Tiered Staircase into existing infrastructure.
Detailed design specifications were approved, the staircase was manufactured and a test assembly was conducted before the steel work was sent to the galvaniser. Once galvanised the steel work was re-checked for structural integrity, specifically straightness and the column assemblies were put together, handrails were assembled and where possible to the stair stringers so as to make the construction easier and safer onsite.
A significant commercial consideration was the potential impact on production, specifically in downtime during the shutdown. Through considerable consultation with various client key stakeholders, Solve was able to complete the installation without impediment to the client and their operations.
Assembly was achieved with a 100-tonne crane and an EWP, 2 riggers, crane driver, boiler maker and a site supervisor, all experienced and trained with working at heights.
