Some jobs look different when you get there…
Of course, for every fabrication job, many hours are spent pouring over PDF, drawing files, some A4, some A3, and some A1. All these plans look entirely feasible on paper. Once tenders are won, the real work begins…
When we were contracted to do the Karipiro downpies for Water Tight Construction we needed to do a site measure. Immediately the challenge was evident, as the angled soffit required a dropper onto an angled trouser piece, into an angled downpipe.
All of this some 10 metres in the air above uneven ground – that wasn’t on the drawing! Of course the job was urgent, as apparently an important rowing event was coming up.
The job required a lot of maths and a few templates, but was completed successfully and on time.
