Scaffolding for Heritage Repairs of an Iconic Newcastle Landmark

All Newcastle locals will be familiar with our iconic town hall (or city hall).  The building served as the city hall for the Council of the City of Newcastle between 1929 and 1977. It’s located at 289 King Street, and was designed by noted theatre architect Henry Eli White.  The foundation stone was laid by the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Dudley de Chair, on 20 April 1928.

Ace Scaffolding Services has supplied scaffolding for remedial building repairs to many Newcastle heritage buildings and structures, but not many as iconic as this.

Scaffolding Hire in Newcastle

Scaffolding hire is one small part of the overall process.  Developing a solution such as this requires careful planning and preparation, scaffolding design, transport, engineering, and installation. 

Our scaffolding hire service is available to any project, big or small.

Ace Scaffold Services’ fleet of scaffold hire equipment is extensive.  This project required approximately 9,500m2 of scaffolding around the main building and 1,000m2 of scaffolding around the clock tower. In total, the project required approximately 550 tonnes of scaffolding.

Engineered Scaffolding for Newcastle’s City Hall

We all know that stone is heavy.  Heritage scaffold projects such as this typically involve stone replacement and therefor have to be designed to withstand high loads.

We all that steel is heavy too. Because this structure was 14m to 40m high, we had to take into consideration significant self-weight, and due to the height, significant wind loads.

Scaffolding Above a Public Entrance

The building remained open during this heritage repair and to maintain unrestricted access for the public and workers at the Town Hall, Ace Scaffolding Services designed an impressive steel beam configuration which clearly spanned the main entrance on 3 sides.

Because of challenging site conditions and obstructions, a variety of other scaffolding techniques were used, including utilising aluminium scaffold beams to span obstructions.
