Nelson Pier – LHD Access Towers 1 & 3
Baulderstone P/L for BAE Australia
Williamstown, Victoria, Australia
Quality Site Welding recently built 2 access stair towers to provide safe access to the LHD ships being built By BAE Australia, at Nelson Pier, Williamstown. Quality Site Welding proposed a construction methodology where the tower levels would be pre-assembled and delivered to site complete. This was achieved with the first tower being erected, safe and ready for use in 2 days.
Each level was a wide load requiring 2 escorts. The loads were delivered out of peak hour including travel through the Tunnel, in Melbourne, at night.
