Victorian vent shaft working platform
Eadon Consulting were part of the team who worked on the design of a temporary lifting platform inside a 200m long Victorian vent shaft this year.
Our role was to assist with calculations and do a Category 1 check for the working platform which sits within the Totley Tunnel vent shaft in Sheffield.
Due to the age of the vent shaft, a lot of dirt from years of rainwater coming in has built up and there are holes in the walls where bricks have fallen out. The platform was needed so inspection, cleaning and repair work could take place.
The working platform has been in operation since June this year and work is still ongoing. This is the first working platform Eadon have designed for a vent shaft. It was designed to BS EN 1808 safety standard.
