Brief

Fabrication and installation of 38 sets of spiral stairs in this 3XN-designed sustainable development for AMP Capital. Installation of structural steel reinforcing in the lobby area.

Challenges
  • Difficult access rigging
  • Preserving pristine white paint and glass finish
  • Complex geometrical engineering

Our site installation and rigging teams had to employ some very creative techniques to get these huge sections of spiral stairs in place, each piece weighing 4 tonnes. The largest set of spiral stairs (left) covers 9 floors of commercial space and forms the architectural centrepiece of the building's main atrium, offering 180 degree views of Sydney Harbour.

Brief

To increase the load-bearing capacity of the stage from 8 tonne to 38 tonne by reinforcing the main stage and choir stall area.

Challenges
  • Difficult access
  • Working in confined spaces
  • Working safely at height
  • High fire danger
  • Preservation of world heritage-listed interiors

To fulfill the brief required the installation of 180 tonne of steel inside the cavity between the outer shell of the Opera House and the internal wall of the auditorium, and 25m above the auditorium in the Tech Zone from where the stage is suspended.

Without using a crane, up to 2 tonne of steel at a time was brought into the building in stages using pulleys to lift and trolleys to move the steel around inside the cavity.

In places the space inside the cavity was less than a metre wide.
