Shangri La Apartments Re clad
Strengthening / Restoration
87 Jervois road, Herne bay Auckland
The Shangri-La project involved a full re-clad of an existing 15 story inner city tower. The challenges of this project were varied and numerous. One of these was dealing with a structure that was itself quite elastic and ensuring that the detailing of the curtain wall could cope with the movement of the structure.
In completing this project we erected a specially engineered scaffold to complete the re-clad in addition to carrying out strengthening work to the 60 metre stair tower while keeping this open to maintain a safe path as a fire escape for all residents. We managed to incorporate this into our programme minimizing delay and disruption to occupants.
