A private school based in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs required an engineered structure to facilitate the safe passage of students up and over an internal site road, whilst construction works were in progress.

Rohrig Constructions, the principal contractor on site, contacted SafeSmart Access to coordinate the design and delivery of a suitable solution.

SafeSmart, in conjunction with delivery partner Just Tube Scaffolding, Rohrig, and the School, prepared a design for public access stairs in conjunction with a 12mL span, 4.5m high bridge. Using Proscaf system.

With a tight deadline, SafeSmart’s as the core of the design, the public-compliant stairs and bridge were 2.0mW with a special duty rating of 5kPa.

This structure was designed to Australian Standards and the stringent requirements for public access. Additionally, the stairs and bridge had two requirements:

1.To be in position for a long period of time (potentially 2+ yrs)

2. To be clad with a suitably aesthetic and weather-proof lining to fit the specifications of the school.

The Proscaf load bearing braces were crucial in achieving the bridge span of 12m. The Proscaf ProClad hoarding system was also supplied in conjunction with the Proscaf System to achieve the striking aesthetics of the finish.

Upon installation, the client was impressed with the finished structure.

Just Tube’s Director, Sam Bury, commented on Proscaf’s capability:

The bridge demonstrated some of Proscaf's best qualities,” said Sam, “The Proscaf System is the best scaffold in the market by far. The team were also impressed with ProClad – having utilised it for the first time on this project.”
