PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Structural remedial works to the existing brick parapet along a busy section of Swanston Street in which a pedestrian gantry was erected for public protection and a scaffold above to access the works. Whilst maintaining the structural integrity of the parapet, the works included the replacement of an existing structural steel bracing system including crainage, modification of two similar bracing systems, brick re-pointing, rendering and roofing works.

This required high liaison with the utility, transport and council bodies to coordinate the installation of visual warning devices to power/tram lines, power shutdowns and night works with the appropriate permits.
