Safety Made Simple for Sage Hotel
Working with builder Cooper & Oxley over the past two decades, Safemaster was once again honoured to be commissioned to provide a height safety solution for the new development of the multi-storey Sage Hotel, as well as the adjacent existing heritage building, located in the Perth CBD.
For a safe access to the existing Heritage building rooftop, a complete 4-1 SKYCLIMB combo access system (which consists of colorbond roof access hatch, fold-down ladder, ceiling ladder and suspension kit) was installed, together with Safemaster’s X-ERT surfacemount anchors.
The system is designed to be non-obtrusive and to preserve the heritage look of the building which involved limited space.
As safety is of paramount importance for the maintenance and cleaning tasks of the external glaze facades/windows at the multi-storey hotel tower, Safemaster specifically provided abseil purlin fix anchors to enable safe access and practices.
Designed to support higher load rating, these anchors were to ‘align’ with the tower’s front panel features so as not to look out of place once the project was completed.
Furthermore, a total of 105 concrete fix anchorages were installed in the slab soffit near windows, as a tie-off point for construction works.
Bearing in mind that the Sage Hotel is located in a high profile CBD area, Safemaster successfully completed all works in a thorough and safe manner, with minimal disruption to the day-to-day activities of the nearly residents and public. This included monitoring of noise controls, tools/equipment delivery routes to site, and timing of works.
Safemaster also offered an annual inspection and a recertification programme to ensure the installed height safety systems were maintain compliance and fit for purpose.
