This large factory development for Orora Packaging in the heart of Manukau’s industrial development was managed by Federal Group.
The factory needed several large Air Handling Units (AHUs) to keep the building positively pressurised to keep out dust. It also had normal climate control systems.
With the project running to a tight schedule, the Monkey Toe platform was ideal to house the AHUs, delivering pre-engineered systems in a short time frame.
The lightweight design transfers the weight back to the purlins. As the platform was high and close to a drop off, the Monkey Toe handrail system simply bolted to the platform to make it safe and compliant.
Large open amply mesh allows for rain to easily wash through. The site also used a lockable ladder cover to limit access to the roof, caged ladders, smaller platforms and walkways.
