Common Tower

How do you solve the high rise construction dilemma of maximising access for personnel and materials whilst minimising the impact on the building?

UBS have a patented answer; their Aluminium Hoist Common Tower system

UBS Common Towers allow comprehensive hoisting facilities to be installed on new build and renovation projects with minimum interference to the construction programme. Hoists of all types can be tied to and grouped around the Common Tower structures. The use of Common Towers maximises the capability for increased access whilst minimising the quantity and size of openings into the building.

  • Hoist Towers for goods, passenger and material hoists up to 300m
  • Aluminium components allow assembly into Common Tower and run back structures for the safe transfer of personnel and materials.
  • Allows concentration of hoisting facilities into one common structure permitting maximum utilisation of mechanised handling facilities.
  • Reduces the number of cladding panels left out for access.

TESTIMONIAL

Carillion’s construction manager [on the Beetham Tower Project] Jack Headland;
“The biggest benefit of the UBS common tower is that it is such a neat arrangement that even running four hoists, it only requires one set of ties to the building. It reduces the number of cladding panels we have to leave off during construction, so it makes life so much simpler for us at the end of the day. It also confines loading activities to a much smaller area so it improves working efficiency. It has been a massive advantage to us on a large project like this.”
