To celebrate this truly hectic time of year, we have put together two of our crane-ziest stories of when cranes collide with unsuspecting buildings.
A few months ago we introduced you to the site at Wolli Creek that was undergoing repair work after the crane of a neighbouring building struck it. This month we will be updating you on that project and introducing you to a similar project at Chippendale. Read on to find out more!
Chippendale Way, Chippendale
A crane collision occurred at this site when the hook block of the crane on the neighbouring building site rotated and became positioned too close to the neighbouring building. In an effort to move the hook of the crane away from the building, the hook struck the western elevation façade several times.
The impact of the hook block resulted in various levels of damage to the glazing units and other building elements.BellMont have now investigated this damage and provided a specification report
With this project in its infancy, make sure you keep up to date with its progress! In the meantime, click the "read more" to view case studies just like this one!
Brodie Sparks Avenue, Wolli Creek
A few bulletins ago we introduced you to this site at Wolli Creek where a crane of a neighbouring building had crashed into the building causing serious damage to the facade and top levels of the building.
Since our last update, we have finalised the concrete hob repairs, cladded and sealed the parapet and waterproofed the roof. In addition to this, we have completed internal rectification work which upon completion allowed tenants to move back into their units for the remainder of the works.
After these works were finished, our engineers drew their attention to the damaged balustrades and garden area.
