DPTI engaged Schiavello as the Construction Manager to manage procurement through to construction. Public safety was also considered with the restoration of the southern façade.

Safety Considerations

The access system incorporated scaffolding with a secure base. This ensured minimal impact to the heritage canopy along the southern facade next to the North Terrace.

The delivery and erection of the gantry and scaffold had to be carefully planned around the high-risk area.

Schiavello also consulted with the Public Transport Services, Skycity Adelaide Casino, Intercontinental Hotel, Taxi Council SA, and DPTI.

The safety concerns centred around the high volume of foot and vehicle traffic, tram, bus and taxi services and local businesses. Through the additional safety initiatives, Schiavello ensured no injuries, downtime, or extra disruptions.
