CONSTRUCTION SITE / RESIDENTIAL / MAINTENANCE / PAINTING SCAFFOLD AND ACCESS

Tri-Point also provides scaffolds for general and specialised access solutions. We work regularly with AJ Grant Building Services providing access for emergency storm repairs, maintenance of schools and other public buildings, access for painters in regular and unusual situations, domestic renovations access, as well as general building site access.

We have undertaken various maintenance projects for the Sydney Opera house and many other Sydney sites.

We utilise Kwikform system scaffold, tube and fit scaffold and Instant mobile alloy towers to provide access in varied and unique situations for home renovators, builders, bricklayers/renderers, roofers and gutterers, painters etc.

We have approached these projects with the same basic principles we apply to all our work. Reliability, efficiency and cost effectiveness.

SUSPENDED CAMERA SYSTEMS

Tri-Point has considerable experience with suspended camera systems and is the Australian representative for Spydercam.

Spydercam is generally regarded as the premium suspended camera system in the world, with a proven track record internationally and a long list of credits. Spydercam offers an accurate, repeatable, fully computer-controlled system.

Tri-Point can create a more basic, winch driven traverse system combined with manual elevation to achieve less complex but more cost effective shots. We can also design and install descender rigs with either manual or winch controlled descent and reset.

MACHINE/PLANT OPERATORS

Tri-Point can supply machine operators on an hourly, daily or weekly basis.

Tri-Point crew are experienced, licenced and certified to operate a variety of machinery including boom lifts, scissor lifts, fork lifts, telescopic handlers, non-slewing cranes and also to drive trucks.

SPECIALISED SERVICES

Over our 15 years in business we have been called upon to undertake some weird tasks. We have wrapped the David Jones Sydney City store in a huge ribbon for Christmas, covered the Sydney stock exchange with a banner, built an access deck under the Sydney Opera house, flown flags of all nations in front of Sydney Museum, built a scaffold as a temporary radio broadcast antenna on top of the highest building in North Sydney, decorated the huge Christmas tree in Darling Harbour and blacked out more venues that we care to remember...
