MESH REMOVAL CHRISTCHURCH AIRPORT CONTROL TOWER

Jul 28, 2016

In June, Abseil Access removed the architectural mesh on the lower portion of the air traffic control tower at Christchurch Airport.

Abseil worker Dan Smith, fully and safely roped in, took the opportunity to do some simulated air yoga. Extreme yoga practitioner Dan says the job was a perfect chance to express his karma.

Airways New Zealand contracted Abseil Access to remove the mesh, which was de-tensioned by the settling of the new steel vortex frame during the Canterbury earthquakes and has since suffered whipping stress in high winds.
