Schiavello’s SA construction team were engaged by DPTI as the Construction Manager to manage all aspects of the project from procurement to construction, including the safety associated with the conservation of the southern façade.

The access system involved a scaffold with a secure base which was required to be minimally invasive on the heritage canopy that runs the length of the southern facade adjacent North Terrace.

In consultation with Public Transport Services (PTS), Skycity Adelaide Casino, Intercontinental Hotel, Taxi Council SA, & DPTI, the delivery and erection of the gantry and scaffold had to be planned around the high-risk situation of public interaction including significant amounts of foot traffic; vehicle traffic; tram, bus and taxi services; and, adjacent businesses.

Schiavello also implemented a number of additional safety protocols that ensured the project didn’t incur any injuries, downtime, or additional stakeholder disruption.
