“Both teams coordinated each load to maximize the materials on each truck and efficiency for offloading,” said Freedman, “Overall, this created a safer and more productive workplace for all involved.”
Once materials were delivered, Kerect Scaffold accomplished the job with eight crew members in three weeks’ time, working fifteen shifts.
With January temperatures reaching negative thirty, weather presented a familiar challenge for Toronto inhabitants. Koach explained that the lighter weights of Layher scaffolding made a significant difference for crew members working eight-hour shifts in harsh weather and helped them come in under budget.
“A little bit less weight makes a big difference,” says Koach, who exclusively uses Layher scaffolding. Layher high-tensile steel products come in over 4,000 parts with corrosion protected galvanized steel to make up the Layher Allround system. Users report a 10 percent faster build with Layher lightweight products, reducing field hours and exposure to risk. Contractors find it particularly appealing for its ability to withstand extreme weather.
Pleased with their work on the first tank, Zooshare hired Kerect to continue work on the second in July. For the second tank, an open STEP measuring 32 metres across, Koach’s design called for a 3 metre by 3 metre scaffold along the perimeter utilizing Layher Allround.
Altogether, Koach’s tank designs called for over 45 tonnes of Layher materials delivered in a quick turnaround to ensure project success. Representative Freedman reflected, “We had some tight deadlines to meet, and with the strong partnership we have built with Kerect over of the years, we really wanted to exceed expectations.”
