VICTORIA BRIDGE CENTENARY - WAIKATO RIVER
In 2010, TRS installed lighting on Hamilton's Victoria Bridge as part of the Bridge's Centenary celebrations. Follow this link to find out more.
NEW ENERGY EFFICIENT LIGHTING INSTALLATION AT SKY TOWER
TRS tackled the job of installing new state of the art LED lights in challenging positions between 196m and 333m above the City. Click here to read more about this project.
In September 2007,TRS began installation of Skwalk at Auckland's Sky Tower. Skywalk is a 360°, 1.2m wide walkway that encircles the tower at 192m above the ground.
Late in 2001 TRS carried out the installation of the Sky Jump at Auckland's Sky Tower. This was a very interesting project in that the work required several lifts up the outside of the Sky Tower, something that had never been done before. We worked closely with Mainzeal Construction and Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner, consulting engineers, on the design of a temporary lifting gib, which TRS fabricated and then installed.
HOROKIWI RADIO MAST REFURBISHMENT
TRS was requested to carry out a detailed inspection of RADIOWORKS' Horokiwi radio mast in the Hutt Valley, Wellington.
Our inspection highlighted a number of urgent maintenance items, especially with the mast's "Top Hat".
We were awarded the project to refurbish the mast with a strict requirement for minimum transmission breaks. To meet this request all work was carried out with the mast on air, albeit at reduced power. The most challenging aspect was flying off and replacing the "Top Hat" by helicopter, both of which required very still weather conditions, something which is very hard to come by in Wellington. HELILINK assisted us with this aspect of the project.
SKY TOWER'S VERTIGO
We were heavily involved in the former climb up Sky Tower (which was known as "Vertigo"). One of the first and major problems was to reduce the radiation levels within the tower itself. We worked closely with Auckland University's Engineering Department to develop systems, unique in the world, to achieve these reduced levels. This involved weeks of working in radiation suits through the peak of summer; just like being in a personal sauna. We also installed a new platform level inside the tower, moved antenna systems and installed all the AC and video requirements.
