During site planning, it was observed that the mental anchor point for pylons was to be cast into the mass concrete foundation with extremely tight tolerances of +/- 10mm for elevation, orientation and angle to receive the pylon leg.
Engineers on site were given the task of developing a system whereby not only could the anchor be positioned within the tolerances, but also for there to be no requirements for operatives to go down into the excavation, thus reducing potential safety hazards. The engineers managed to design a frame which has exceeded all expectations and has produced tolerances of +/- 5mm and eliminated the need for operatives to enter the excavation.
The Client has described this as ‘trailblazing innovation’ and the pylon contractor has been highly praised.
