About this entry
After securing the contract to restore Swanson Dock East Berth 1, McDonnell Dowell sought an alternative to working from scaffolding and barges, which present risks such as slips, trips, falls and drowning. The company designed reusable platforms named ‘wharf fender access frames’.
All surfaces are stable and non-slip and workspaces are well-lit and protected from marine conditions. The multi-level decks can be moved along the wharf in small modules using an on-site crane.
