When fabricating customised anchor solutions we know that this should be left to professionals… Our Fabrication partners are the very best in their field. They have the skills and equipment to produce top quality products in mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, or other metals.
Our custom anchor solutions are made from 3D CAD drawings, so they are always fabricated accurate to the millimetre.
We also assemble many of our generic anchor systems in our workshop, which provides savings on the final product!
101 Bay St Port Melbourne
Architect: Plus Architecture
Builder: Hickory Developments - Life Built
Completed: Oct 2012
101 Bay St Port Melbourne
One of the largest concerns on the project at 101 Bay St was the problem of window cleaners landing on penthouse balconies – thus reducing the property value. The customised beam shown pivots on a large axis to reach 4 abseil points and solved the concern of landing on balconies, thus avoiding significant profit reduction!
This particular building includes 56 floor set anchors, 15 inverted anchors used to access under-hangs, and 1 fully customised beam. The builders also requested around 35 temporary anchors to be used in conjunction with window installation. Resourcity designed, fabricated, installed and certified all systems.
The Vogue - Chapel Street South Yarra
Architect: The Buchan Group
Builder: Hickory Developments
Completed: Dec 2011
The Vogue – Chapel Street South Yarra
At 31 storeys high The Vogue in South Yarra was the most challenging project that Resourcity had undertaken to date. Resourcity designed a system of abseiling and roof access that met all of the complex project problems including; a curved height building crown, installation of anchors below paving, and rigging ropes over glazed edges.
A customised davit system was developed. To make relocating the davit possible around the crown gantry and caged ladder it was built of lightweight material.
This building consists of 44 Davit points on the steel gantry, 44 Lateral restraints (at the half-abseil mark), 3 horizontal lifelines, 55 anchors beneath paving, 60 Floor set anchors, and 26 inverted anchors – used to access under-hangs. Resourcity was also asked by the builder to rig up a protective catch net over a glazed atrium, which is now part of the shopping centre below.
Unitised Building (UB)
Building Name: Prefabricated Construction
Issue: Anchor Points
Completed: Ongoing Use
Unitised Building construct high-rise buildings in a factory, they made of custom steel modules that are almost complete before they leave the factory.
Resourcity worked closely with Unitised Building in developing a safe method to access the rooves of each steel module.
The system includes 2 major anchor points that are connected by a nylon rope and tensioner, which acts like a lifeline. The system including major anchors was tested using our ratchet and pull test equipment.
