The choice of SiteCover

Covering of the construction was needed to keep up with time schedule. Being cheaper, and more than twice as fast to install than traditional solutions, SiteCover was the obvious choice.

SiteCover applied

In september 2015, shortly after the assembly of SiteCover in Målev, a typical Danish late-summer thunderstorm passed over the northwestern parts of Copenhagen, releasing 20 mm of rain over a short period of time. On this single occasion the 1200 m2 SiteCover structure gathered more than 24 m3 of water, that was led by the legs to the ground. 24 tons of water that would have ended up on the unfinished roof of the construction underneath, had it not been for SiteCover.

The cranes

The auditorium-building covered by SiteCover is a 2 story building, partly build in to the ground. The terrain around the structure is leaning, which gives a difference in height of about 5 meters between SiteCovers supporting columns.

When the overhead crane is not in use, the site-management rents it out to sub-contractors. With the main construction finished, it is mainly used to move material around on site, and to unload material delivered by lorries. The lorries have direct access under SiteCover.

"One of SiteCovers advantages is the short assemble time. Compared to traditional scaffolding SiteCover only spend 1/3 of the time to assemble the structure"

"Using SiteCover means that we are independent of the weather. We save money on expenses like drying out, and we have been able to start the interior work before the skylights on the roof has been completed"
