Modern architecture facades come in all shapes and sizes and may also involve unusual operating conditions. We will analyse the problem and provide the most cost-efficient and tailored access system to the project.



We used their mast climbers for cladding, patching, painting, caulking and cleaning of all the facade works at the new 10 storey South Australia Police headquarters. There were initially 2 X 20 metre twin mast platforms which were dismantled and re-located several times during the project at various stages and in different locations. Scotia was extremely helpful in all aspects from design and engineering of the machines to relocating and punctual removal of materials from site.

Their machines were very safe, efficient and effective in getting the works done in a comparatively short period of time. George Barbour and Chris Smith were a very professional and experienced team. They were always punctual and worked well within time frames given the restraints of working on an interstate project.

We used Scotia to complete the first major high rise renovation on the Gold Coast. The renovation work to the Allawah apartments in Surfers Paradise was carried out by the use of 1/23m and 2/16m twin Mast Climbers. Works included the repair of concrete spoil, removal and replacement of all windows, render and painting of the building facade.

The use of these machines made working on the outside of the building safe and minimized downtime due to the weather. To save on the cost of cranes the Mast Climbers were also used in the erection and dismantle of 17 stories of scaffold that was erected on the north face of the building. Steve and all his employees made the installation, maintenance and dismantle of the machines exceptionally safe and easy. I highly recommend the use of Scotia Access Systems.

We engaged Scotia to supply an access solution for an 8 storey building at 55 Young Street Redfern. We look forward to working together again in the future.

Scotia Access Systems machines enabled safe access to the work front. The feed back I have received from our sub-contractors suggests they prefer the climbers over conventional access systems. Factors such as stability, safety, smoothness of movement, the ability to adjust the platform to any required hight and the fact the platform have GPO points all make for an excellent access system.
