BESPOKE ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS
RCS is equipped to provide engineering solutions & temporary work designs to facilitate bespoke lifting operation and Machinery Movements.
All designs & solutions are completed by our in-house structural engineer.
Tandem Lifting With
A large mole hole served as our delivery route to basement levels for numerous plant and machinery. The positioning and size of the mole hole brought a unique challenge, as no porta gantry system could provide a sufficient safe working load and none had a beam span long enough to cover the hole and pick the load from the ground floor.
A scaffold bridge was designed & built spanning the mole hole, with an even distance for load-landing and load-picking. A 1200mm adjustment to the porta gantry legs enabled use on the scaffold bridge. This unique practical solution saved thousands for the client, enabling all deliveries to basement levels.
Cooling Tower Access
To assemble the cooling towers, safe access on all four sides of the towers was critical, yet unavailable.
Scaffolding would not suffice due to wind loadings, so a temporary deck was built over the cooling tower base frame using timber sleepers. The deck was designed to take the weight of a Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP).
Landing Deck For 7 Tonne Lift Motors
The team had to lift seven-tonne lift motors to level 37 & position them inside the lift motor room within the north core. With only tin decking in front of the lift motor room doorway, the team were unable to land the lift motors.
A landing deck capable of withstanding heavy point loads was designed & built to land and skate the lift motors on. The deck was formed using box-section steel, scaffold boards, ply & steel tracking plate. The load was lifted using site tower cranes, landed onto the temporary deck and skated into the final position.
