Situation

Modern and streamlined, the home of the Peter MacCullum Cancer Centre officially opened in July 2016.

This $1 billion construction houses some 96 overnight inpatient beds, 110 chemotherapy, medical and same day beds, six operating theatres, a dedicated clinical trials unit and educational training spaces. Adding to the complexity of the building is a network of link bridges which connect to four new floors on top of the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

This visually stunning building  required systems that would not impact its aesthetic and additionally would not cause any damage to the impressive glass facades.

There was also necessity for the supply of other height safety equipment for the whole facility to provide access and fall protection for maintenance staff.

 

Solution

This large project required the installation of most of SAYFA's products.

ALTO Step Ladders, KATT Modular Ladders and KOMBI Stairs and Platforms provide access onto and between roof levels. Designated walkways are now installed on the roof tops using ON-TRAK/PACE600 Walkways and SENTRY Guardrails and fall arrest protection using TRAVEL8 Static Lines and SAYFA's proprietary Anchor Systems now exists for personnel working at heights.

Access to the facades for maintenance and cleaning was provided with the installation of RAPTOR Rigid Rails. Hidden snugly under the canopy of many of the facades, they offer the operator easy movement whilst being barely visible to the eye, which was in keeping with the designer's vision.

RAPTOR Rigid Rails also enable multiple workers to be connected simultaneously at one time, providing cost savings for maintenance work.

Among the other SAYFA products installed, a quantity of VISTA Fold Down Ladders were used to provide a unique solution for internal access. Due to their location in areas of high public visibility, VISTA fold down ladders were the ideal choice as visual impact could be kept to a minimum.

Their integration with SKYDORE Access Roof Hatches means access to roof tops can be given to restricted personnel only.

 

 

With the strict time constraints adhered to it was a credit to the entire construction team when the delivery of the project was completed on time and on budget.
