Advitech was engaged by a staging equipment supplier to provide independent third party engineering design verification for their specialised hoisting and lifting equipment, as part of a major upgrade at a prominent Sydney opera and theatre venue.
Receive truly independent advice regarding the condition of structures, machinery & hoisting equipment and related systems by a quality-assured engineering practice, backed by experienced theatre specialists.
Critical issues for theatres that pose a risk to building safety and integrity are often overlooked, whilst relatively inconsequential issues can receive inordinate priority and attention because of their simplicity (e.g. improper mousing on a shackle).
Similarly, control system reliability and functional safety is paramount when personnel are working underneath hoisted loads, but this risk, once again, may not receive the attention it duly deserves.
Advitech and our specialist partners understand that the building structure, understage and overstage machinery, the control systems etc. are all relying on each other for holistic operational safety, and that these systems are interdependent. We have the engineering disciplines and combined experience to address all safety-related aspects of your venue. We have chartered engineers (both CPEng and RPEQ) in structural, civil, mechanical, and functional safety disciplines.
