Cantilevered Drop Lift Access

Oct 2012

Borough Buildings, Birmingham


3 lift Drop Lift Access Scaffold from pairs of cantilevered aluminium beams at 2m centres, to provide access to the rear elevation windows, all above the adjoining building.

The design made mor complicated by the fact the client requested that all the fulcrum loads from the cantilever beams be transferred to the existing roof beams at 2.65m centres. To achieve this, we designed a bridge beam spanning between the existing roof beams to support the cantilever beams. Supporting legs transferred the reaction loads directly to the existing floor beams.
