The Client

Global pharmaceutical manufacturer

The Brief

Design, manufacture and install five 2 meter square roof-based inspection platforms to enable twice-yearly access by engineers measuring air flow into fume cupboards. The project included safety considerations such as safe working-load ladders and swing gates.

The Challenge

The main challenge was not being able to bolt any part of the platform structure to the floor roof. Instead, we designed the whole structure to be fixed to existing RSJs. This meant we manufactured the whole thing with installation in mind, solving problems in the workshop rather than later on site. We also created installation instructions, complete with diagrams, to speed up this final stage.

Manufactured out of mild steel, the whole structure was hot-dipped galvanised to ensure protection from the elements.
