Job 1179 - Replace fence blown over by fascia (See Job 1160)
Industrial Abseiling work on and off-rope to aide our clients construction, repair and maintenance requirements. This job, a by product of a roof repair (see Job 1160), was caused when 70-lm of Fascia blew off a 13-level apartment complex and knocked over a paling fence. CGU Insurance gave Industrial Abseiling the green light and we ordered a new aluminium fence, removed the debri and installed the new one.
There was an installation hiccup - originally a besser block wall was laid on top of a concrete foundation with a capping brick. The besser blocks were not reinforced nor core-filled. In order to remedy, Industrial Abseiling removed the capping, chem-set reinforcing and poured new concrete to erect the fence upon. The fence and the workmanship are top-notched. The chippies, painters, concreters and I worked hard in and out of the rain to knock it over in about 35-man hours.
