Tainui Bridge


Industrial Site Services successfully conducted the maintenance repairs for the 300 metre long Tainui Bridge in Huntly, New Zealand. The project was challenging in terms of the terrain and eco-sensitivity of the river flowing under the bridge. The ISS team built unique barge scaffold to work on, along with a rope access team. A job well done in terms of meeting the project deadline. The innovative approach of the ISS team made it possible to complete the project with 3000 man hours and well within the budget.
