Pacific Tower Hotel

20191126 110928

Solution

The Pacific Tower hotel, located in the heart of Christchurch, has, since being in construction from 2010, been one of three sky rises that survived the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. This job consisted of 90 metres of handrail around the perimeter of the roof and was awarded to us by Wyatt Construction.

Overview

Pacific Towers Hotel, located in the heart of Christchurch was a job required to not make any holes in the existing handrails, so we custom made plates to clamp the new handrail. We were tasked with modifying the existing handrails to make them compliant. This involved getting the material to the rooftop where our team then fixed new mid rails to the existing handrail stanchions with a custom made bracket. No penetrations to the existing steel work were made as this was a requirement from the client. All work was conducted whilst working in fall restraint to ensure the safety of our team on this 23 story hotel.
