ST PAULS CATHEDRAL
APS installed a Technitruss suspended access platform in the Historic St Paul's Cathedral in Melbourne. The Cathedral, which is located opposite the famous Flinders Street Station, went through a significant restoration project to reinstating the Cathedral back to its former glory.
The APS Technitruss Access Platform System was used to provide access to enable the cleaning of the Cathedral walls and re glazing of the stain glass windows of the upper arch of the main hall. The platform, which was 40m long by 1.2m wide was suspended from the massive roof truss structure above, providing a safe, user friendly, stable and cost-effective means of access.
The key advantage of using the APS Technitruss access platform System versus traditional access methods such as scaffold, was not just enabling ease of access and project efficiency to the direct remediation scopes at height but this approach allowed restoration works and the day to day operations of the cathedral to continue on the areas below the Technitruss which would have been otherwise restricted.
