The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) in Melbourne, VIC represents an alliance of several specialist cancer hospitals and research centres. The building has a network of connecting link bridges between the old and new constructions.

The heating, ventilation and air conditioning plants (HVAC) on the rooftop required an access system that could be frequently used to perform regular maintenance.

With lifts to the roof being the only means of access, the HVAC access systems had to be modular and easily transportable. Additionally, the systems would be located in a confined space, requiring designs that worked to specific measurements.

Given the rooftop access and site limitations, KOMBI continuous access platforms from Sayfa Group were the perfect solution. Being modular by design, the access system could be brought to site in loose components and assembled in situ around the HVAC plant.

The KOMBI systems could also be adjusted as required during installation to accommodate for different fan heights and limited space. Sayfa’s technical team provided advice, assistance and support throughout the project, with the installation of the first section done in collaboration with the installer, Signal & Hobbs.
