A particular challenge was the additional requirement to install scaffolding to the atrium ridge, which was 18 metres high, and also install scaffolding on the outside of the atrium for the façade steps that had to be built. The answer lay in the aluminium scaffolding from the RS TOWER 5 series. It is lightweight and can be configured and expanded to create unique combinations. It can also be supplied quickly. Even to cover the scope of this enormous task. Once again, it is clear: customisation knows now boundaries.
1 Coming up with solutions together
Thanks to the long-term collaboration, the requirements were quickly fathomed. The experience of Boels Rental, the expertise of Altrex and the companies' collective vision quickly made it clear that the answer was an all-in, customised solution; a combination configuration of scaffolding from the RS TOWER 5 series.
2 Drawing and calculating
Safety is always central. Particularly with this project which goes much further than the usual. A strength and stability calculation in line with the norm for façade scaffolding EN 12811 provided assurance that the scaffolding would be sturdy and sufficiently reliable. Even to a height of 18 metres.
3 High demand, high supply
Hundreds of metres of scaffolding frames, platforms for 1500 m² of façade, three lorries filled with reliable Altrex materials. All supplied exactly as and when required. From stock. That is just one of the reasons that Boels Rental has used Altrex for so many years.
4 Safety and certainty
During construction, the scaffolding was checked on location. Because, alongside safety, we also champion certainty.
Knowing how it will work out before the question is even asked
The collaboration between Boels Rental and Altrex goes back many years. Nowadays, just one word is enough for either party to come up with a suitable solution.
It's all about trust', according to Jan van Bruggen, 'After many years of collaboration, I know that it will be fine if I have a question or am facing a challenge. As soon as I've made the call, I know that people are working on a solution I can offer to my customer. Sometimes, I ask a question that leads to new innovations for Altrex. That is how we keep one another on our toes."
