Heavy Duty Hoist Run-Off

Aug 2012

PWC, 1 Embankment Place, London


12m x 4.5m x 50m high hoist tower incorporating 6.5m x 3.5m heavy duty run-off platforms to all floor levels. The run-off platforms are supported by just eight clusters of standards, each cluster supporting in excess of 180kN. Finding a method of tying such a huge structure, whilst keeping disruption to a minimum to the building, was particulary challenging. The final design having just three tie points per floor.
