Effective Solution for a Rooftop Bar ProjectAustralia

Effective Solution for a Rooftop Bar Project

When contractors, Cook Building & Development and Woods Construction Engineers took on the contract to build a steel frame structure the challenges where somewhat unusual.

The project in question is the construction/erection of a rooftop bar on the top of 2 King William St – a heritage listed building built for the Bank of New South Wales, and known as the Westpac Bank Building, the last tenant to occupy the building. The building was originally built between 1939 and 1942 and is situated on a prominent location in the Adelaide, Australia.

The solution in the end was quite simples. Leading crane rental company Hall’s Cranes supplied a UNIC URW706 Mini-Crawler crane to erect the steel on the rooftop bar project. This was a cost-effective solution for the project as the other alternative a road based crane would have cause immense inconvenience plus the extra costs of traffic management, pedestrian management. The use of a large all-terrain crane on the road as also impractical as the local council would only allow a large crane to setup on the road only on Sundays!

A Liebherr 350 t crane was used to lift the Unic 706 to the rooftop of the building. From a central position, with the help of custom made tracks, the mini-crawler was able to erect the steel as per the client’s requirements
