Rising factory

Working at heights can be very dangerous and should be avoided when possible. Sometimes this cannot be avoided, however, and therefore any techniques to improve the safety should be implemented.

High level working can also cause environmental and visual challenges to local residents and the community.

The example below shows how one site achieved this:

  • The company is introducing a ‘rising factory’ method of building;
  • The ‘factory’ is several storeys high and fully enclosed. Craneage, including vehicle container off-loading, is located within the factory;
  • As the tower rises the factory is jacked up floor by floor from the concrete fame;
  • The system reduces the requirement for working at height, increases the use of pre-fabrication, reduces the visual impact (as the factory rises the exposed building below is fully clad) and includes welfare provision.
