EARTHQUAKE STRENGTHENING INSTALLATION
The Wellington crew have been doing a bolt install on Wellington’s tallest building: the Majestic Centre. The bolts are not our standard M16 Abseil anchors but two hundred 40kg M56 bolts!! These are part of the earthquake strengthening work going on in the building.
We have been working with a team from Fletcher Construction who have been core drilling from inside while we bring the bolts down on ropes from the roof (we have the easy job as there are no tenants to work around 90m in the air).
The Wellington wind has been tough to deal with at times and the use of traditional climbing cams has been essential.
