The refurbishment of Energex substation was a high security and highly complex job completed for FKG and Energex.  Due to security concerns the scaffolding had to be canterlevered off the building with underslung beams.  The beams were fabricated and winched into place the for the scaffolding to erected on.  All the engineering was completed by Construc Pty Ltd.  This was a challenging job due to the scaffolding methodology, engineering and installation of 54 underslung beams weighing over 300kg each. Newnham’s delivered the project to the FKG’s and Enegex’s high safety standards and security measures and has continued to work with FGK on new projects.
