ServiceFM recently performed a complex concrete pour of a lift shaft at a major department store in Melbourne, prior to elevator upgrade works.
General Manager Hard Services, Ben Pursche, says “Our team, led by Matt Foulds and Les Hubiak, met strict budget and time constraints to successfully complete this project in the main passenger lift from the carpark to the strict design specifications required by the client.”
The pour was required to meet a set height so the elevator could be programmed for the required stops at each floor.
The entire project was scheduled over 2.5 days, with work only commencing following the removal of the existing elevator.
Pre-pour preparatory work was completed in one night, prior to the shaft being inspected and signed off by engineers the following morning.
The pour commenced immediately upon engineer approval to allow enough time for the concrete to cure and for Schindler to commence their install, as planned, two days later.
