Project Description

Perth Domestic and International Airport

Featured project: International Airport Roof

The scaffold was designed after consultation with PAPL, Perkins and all other relevant authorities. The top floor of the airport was propped to the underside of the roof so that work could continue on this floor. Then scaffold on the roof commenced transferring the weight through the roof to the lower floors.

Two independents were then build and tied together with 48 x 10m beams, also spurred by another 48 beams of 5m lengths. The scaffold was unable to be fixed to the roof so 36 tonnes of counterweights were used to enable the sheeted scaffold to withstand 100 km/h winds.

This was all built in the airside section of the airport.

Total scaffold used: 110 tonnes

Time to erect and sheet: 6 men x 4 weeks, 12 hour shifts


Delivered with zero incidents on time and on budget.

Ive used JB Scaffolding on numerous projects and would highly recommend them. They are safe, efficient and highly regarded with our Airport Project team. They have successfully completed many complex projects in a tough working environment at the Airport.
