In July 2010, McElligotts erected scaffolding access to a ship fender along a rail beam. Instead of a conventional vertical birdcage design, this scaffolding had to hang from engineered brackets, welded to the rail beam above. As part of the design and engineering process, we prepared a 3D CAD design for our clients, ensuring they had a better idea of what the finished product would look like before approving.
In total, the completed scaffolding access system weighed 232 tonne and spanned 200 metres, allowing for complete access along the rail beam. Learn more about our scaffolding capabilities.
