CASE STUDY

We used our rigging and working at height expertise to solve a difficult access challenge at the Carnegie Leisure Centre, Dunfermline.

Project Details

Completion: 25th November 2011
Location: Carnegie Leisure Centre, Dunfermline
Client: Balfour Beatty / Barr Construction / Fife Council
Project value:
Kit List

The equipment and systems that we used included:
  • Prolyte S52SV Truss components along with Prolyte StageDex
  • Conventional quick-form scaffold tower for high-level access from decking span.
The client needed to access a faulty high-level LED lighting feature at the Carnegie Leisure Centre in Dunfermline. The fixture was positioned in the internal roof directly above the main swimming pool. Emptying the pool was not an option due to time constraints. The Leisure centre was in the process of being renovated and the hand-over deadline was looming. The faulty lighting fixture was therefore threatening the timely completion of the refurbishment.

Our timely intervention allowed the refurbishment of the centre to be finished on time. The project shows that we have the expertise to meet challenging maintenance requirements in a safe and controlled manner and with the minimum of disruption.


What we did
  • We used a combination of industry-standard equipment and lateral thinking to allow safe and controlled high-level access to the fitting.
  • We devised a system that employed Prolyte S52SV Truss components along with Prolyte StageDex to create a large unsupported deck-span across the pool.
  • A conventional quick-form scaffold tower was then used to provide high-level access.
  • The system used wheeled trucks to position the deck span and to allow it to be easily used in multiple areas (without the need to strike the whole system).

Key project steps
  • Project outline
  • Feasibility study
  • Access system proposal
  • Risk assessment
  • Development of a Project Method Statement
  • Provision of works
  • Debrief and review

Results
Our system provided a very flexible access method to areas that would otherwise have been unreachable without significant disruption to the building and its patrons. One of its other key benefits was the time it took to set up and dismantle – it was put into the building and commissioned in just two hours and was de-rigged in the same time.
