Manchester Airport

An access scaffold was required, to enable the contractors to build the new air traffic control tower, at Manchester Airport. The cylindrical shape and wind loads, made this project distinctive from most other designs. Vortex winds were acting on the structure, causing high levels of lateral stress and loads on each lift. Thus resulting in extensive bracing and ties. A substantial cantilever of 4m was required, 40m from ground level, and continued up a further 20m, before spanning back into the roof.
