Cape Bowling Green

Project Description / Overview:

CivilPlus were engaged to construct the removal of the existing 36m steel lattice tower and replacement with a new 16m Fiberglass GRP structure. This was a design and construct project which CivilPlus engaged designers to complete the design on the steel base and complete fatigue analysis of the structure for a 30 year design life. The new base was designed, fabricated, barged to site and then installed. Prior to installation, the old tower was removed, this was completed utilising Dwyer Aviations’ heavy lift helicopter and advanced riggers. Once removed the new structure was installed with a 8 tonne crawler assisted by the excavator on site.
