Effective Solution for a

Rooftop Bar Project

When

Development and Woods Construction

Engineers took on the contract to build a steel

frame structure the challenges where some-

what 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 origi-

nally built between 1939 and 1942 and is situ-

ated 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 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
