Exciting assignment through our contract with Bergen Municipality where we will have a maintenance project at AdO arena.
It is a very time-critical project. We will have to make a good modeling of the task and how we will solve it.
Join when the technical department is commissioned to 3D model the scaffolding solution!

We have now received an exciting assignment through our contract with Bergen Municipality where we will have a maintenance project at AdO arena. We have limited time for the completion of the assignment. It is a very time-critical project. We will have to make a good modeling of the task and how we will solve it.
Scope of work
Here is a picture showing the 50 meter large pool where extensive maintenance work is to be done. Our main task will be to set up a scaffolding around the diving tower event. There will also be a lot of maintenance down in the pool when they drain water. There are both frames to be maintained on and there are fastening devices for underwater rugby. There is a lot of tile and masonry work to be done in the pool. We must arrange for access for the other work to be done. The main idea is that when they drain the water from the pool here, it is 5 meters deep where we in the entire width of the pool must build a scaffolding the first 5 meters. And get scaffolding on the flanks as soon as possible so that others can get started work on the 3 meter diving tower while we continue the construction up to the 10 meter tower.
What is critical for us, due to the fact that the pool is closed to the public when this is going on, and there are events that start in August, so we have a very limited window. We will not have access until 4 July. Then there will be 10 intensive days where all the work will be carried out. This means that we must erect the scaffolding and in the course of 1-2 days we must allow the masons access to at least the 3-meter diving tower while we continue to build up to the 10 meter tower. It is thus a 10-day window and during that time all maintenance work must also be carried out. We will initially also have some preparation for securing in relation to fall protection. We must think about the HSE part, that it will not be dangerous for those who move down in the pool – that we have good protection against falling objects.
We need an overview of the solution. That it provides access to the various diving towers in a good way for those who will perform work. At the same time, we have in this time window – we will be completely dismantled on July 14 – ie on day 10. A project organization has been set up. We have the names of all the different companies involved and we will have to make a detailed plan. But for us, there will probably be 24/7 operation during the 10 days the project runs. It is therefore especially important that we ensure control over which material we are to mobilize so that we have everything ready when the starting shot goes! That we have all the parts in place down at the plant.
It is given only 2 days to tear everything down. So July 14-15 we have to get everything down. When we release the masons on both flanks, they will hopefully be finished in the middle of the period, so that we can start dismantling. We must have a smartness in scaffolding sizes that gives the flexibility that allows us to reach the finish line by the 14th and can start with disassembly.
You can start by setting up a model, then we will discuss a little along the way how we envisage that we can make this the best possible. Then we will talk to the scaffolding builders about how they intend to build scaffolding so that we can start drawing.
The assignment is delivered and soon we will present the result!
