In May of 2018, Farra installed the first of its kind, bespoke building facade maintenance system which has ultimately revolutionised the re-cladding process of high-rise buildings.
The project was for the Spencer on Byron apartment complex, a complex that spans 23 stories high. The platform is being used to support a complete replacement of the building's facade. To engineer such equipment took about 1 year and the maintenance unit will be on site for up to 2 years.
Installed: June, 2018
