The complete Pacific Games 2015 build project was started with a fixed deadline and a very compressed time frame from concept design to construction and completion.
a full range of fall arrest cable, rail and anchor systems with roof pitches varying from 5˚ to 60˚, and walkway and ladder solutions to match.
RoofSafe Cable/Spiratech Anchors to Kingspan Roofing/Dimond Roofing and Concrete Membrane Roof RoofSafe Rail to Kingspan Roofing, Monkey Toe Walkway, Handrail, Ladders, Roof Condenser Mounts and Access Hatch.
Sir John Guise Indoor Stadium, Sir John Guise Outdoor Stadium & Taurama Aquatic Centre / Olympic Village Dining Hall.
Peddle Thorp were involved in the main stadium projects and due to the very tight time frame they chose to work closely with reputable New Zealand contractors & subcontractors that they could trust and guarantee a finished product within the programme. The projects were totally managed from NZ and required working with the architects to produce a solution to the height safety and access requirements on site, two of the buildings were new builds and two buildings were total refurbishments, the challenges were aplenty.
One particular part was the removal of existing steel walkway and installation of new walkway within the roof space of the Sir John Guise Indoor Stadium 25m above the main auditorium working in 35˚ to 40˚C heat and humidity, the standard climate condition for Papua New Guinea. To provide a safe working environment in a developing country that is does not currently have great regards for Health & Safety.
