Effective Solution for a
Rooftop Bar Project
Development and Woods Construction
Engineers took on the contract to build a steel
frame structure the challenges where some-
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 origi-
nally built between 1939 and 1942 and is situ-
ated on a prominent location in the Adelaide,
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 pro-
ject as the other alternative a road based crane
would have cause immense inconvenience
plus the extra costs of traffic management, pe-
destrian 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 custommade
tracks, the mini-crawler was able to erect the
steel as per the client’s requirements
