Painting Project

AIRA won the contract to rectify the coating on the Transfer Truss Arch at the Sydney Aquatic Centre at Homebush.

The process involved accessing every element of the arch, reporting the defects in a photographic report format and then carrying out the rectification and spot repairs. Once completed the entire structure was cleaned and painted from start to finish.

The works required a different approach to your normal rope access techniques. Special trolleys were designed and built by our staff to move back and forth along the arch easily. Using a 2 part Dulux painting system, rope access and a few ideas a little from left field allowed AIRA to complete the works with a perfect safety record, again.

The project was initially slated to take 12 weeks but AIRA found that the original scope required adjusting up, by 70%. We also encountered one of Sydney’s wettest spring periods that kept the team from working for weeks on end.

In the end the entire structure was completed and all additional works encompassed within the originally quoted figure. The budget for the client was maintained to the original price, additional works completed within the budget and the arch looks great, again.

AIRA congratulates all staff involved for continuing to work safely and diligently on what was a long project.
