Alimak Hek's first dual high speed hoist sale to Icon for their 46 level building in Melbourne's CBD

Icon Co, Shadowplay, Melbourne, Australia

Icon's first purchase of dual high speed Alimak hoists to complete a 46 level residential tower in Melbourne's CBD, that due to shape, undulating facade, and single location, Alimak hoists were their preferred option.

Shadowplay is a 46 level residential tower in Melbourne's CBD, comprising of 494 apartments with associated communal facilities, ground floor lobby, retail facilities and a state of the art car stacking car park system. Construction commenced in January 2016 and will be completed mid-2018. Due to the shape, smooth wave-like facade of the building and public access required to be maintained on the footpath's below, there was only one location where the dual Alimak hoists could be positioned. 

The dual Alimak Scando 650 FC-S hoists were purchased, specifically for this project due to the high volumes of trades to be moved vertically and at higher speeds than the Fc hoists Icon currently own. The ability to pre-set multiple destinations at one time, also made it easier for the operators to handle many passengers entering at the same time with varying destinations. A door on the long side of the car (C-Door) was added to one of the dual hoists, acting as a seperate goods hoist to maximise the loading of pallets and efficiency. 

As there was only one location the hoists could be installed in, as they could not go down to street level, they had to be installed on top of a public protection gantry to maintain access to the footpath below for pedestrian access, Icon entrusted Alimak Hek's engineering department to come up with a safe and reliable solution. 

Neil Timms, Senior Site Manager for Icon, believes the size of the machines, speed and reliability cannot be matched by any comparable machine in Australia's market. Along with the excellent service given from Alimak he's service team who were accommodating with Icon's tight schedule. 

The Alimak Scando 650 FC-S hoists would be recommended for all future high-rise structures that icon are constructing and to other business associates in the field.
