Resourcity - Resourceful Creativity

We Install! We Test! We Certify!

Abseiling and safety anchors save lives. We ensure that all of our anchors are installed and tested according to Australian Standards (AS/NZS 1891:2007).

We are compliant to work on both union and non-union construction sites. We can install during construction or we can retrofit an older building with anchor points.

When a detailed system of anchor points are used, we provide operations manuals, and training as required ensuring that the system is used safely!


  • Sunday Apartments - South Melbourne
    Architect: Woods Bagot
    Builder: WATPAC Construction
    Completed: Apr 2013

    Sunday Apartments – South Melbourne

    The Sunday Apartments project has a major courtyard on Level 3 surrounded by 15 storeys of building. The design called for bridged walkways positioned at every 3rd level above the courtyard. Resourcity designed a system of anchor points on the under side of each bridge to allow for abseiling to the areas below. To save on cost these were installed while the bridge walkways were still at the factory being made.

    This project consists of 58 floor set anchors, 10 wall set anchors, 2 horizontal lifelines, 20 anchors under the bridge walkways, and a caged access ladder.

  • 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.

  • Alt Apartments - Flemington
    Architect: Fender Katsalidis Architects
    Builder: Hickory Developments - Life Built
    Completed: May 2012

    Alt Apartments - Flemington

    Alt Apartments was the third; and largest building stage on the Flemington road site. Building on our long-term relationship with Hickory Developments, Resourcity worked closely with Fender Katsalidis Architects to develop a simplified – over parapet abseil system including structural steel parapet guides that doubled in areas as rooftop guard railing.

    This particular building includes 77 floor set anchors with associated parapet guides, 35 Lateral restraints (at the half-abseil mark), and 4 inverted anchors to be used to access under-hangs. Builders, Architects, and finally the owner's corporation have been very satisfied with the result.
