A mini conveyor system hired from Kennards Lift & Shift and comprising of three conveyors linked together solved an access problem for ISIS during a project in the basement of a heritage listed, multi-storey building in Perth’s CBD.
ISIS, one of Australia’s leading commercial property services groups was tasked with transforming a basement, previously used as an archival storeroom into new staff amenities including change rooms, showers and toilets.
The work involved removing the existing concrete slab and excavating the sandy soil to install a concrete tank measuring 2.5m in diameter and 2.5m high.
A standard size door to the street provided the only access for machinery, but site manager Ian Cummings and project manager Bart Gabriel solved the problem with a one tonne excavator and a portable mini conveyor system.
Hired from Kennards Lift & Shift’s hire centre at Belmont, the mini-conveyor system was created by linking three conveyors together, running from the basement to a small tipper in the street.
Operating on single phase power, the mini conveyor system with the three conveyors could be easily carried by two people, enabling simple set up and repositioning. The conveyor system was the only practical alternative to wheelbarrows.
