engineered twin Scando 28/37 construction hoists for a high-rise building project in Melbourne’s South Yarra.
Crema Constructions’ Riverside Apartments is a $42 million project involving the construction of a 27-storey 217-apartment tower, complete with four levels of basement car parking.
Given the tight space constraints of the building site, limited access was available to accommodate the operation of a hoist or transport platform.
Alimak Hek engineered twin Scando 28/37 construction hoists to occupy a void in the centre of the building, allowing Crema Constructions to make full use of available space on site, while speeding up construction through reduced manual handling and crane usage.
Alimak Hek worked closely with the design team at Crema Constructions to coordinate the installation of the twin hoists through the building’s central void. The unusual location of the hoists within the construction tower required careful planning and engineering to ensure minimal site interruption and maximum efficiency of operations on site.
The twin Scando hoists were installed in April 2011 and dismantled in December of the same year. The construction hoists were employed for fast, safe and efficient transport of heavy materials/ payloads to each of the tower’s 20 levels, while easily accommodating the 110 personnel on site daily.
