Unique Propping Design Suspends 400 t Heritage Clock 55 m High During Restoration Works
The intricate bracing and propping design by TTW enabled the building’s 400 t heritage clock tower to be suspended over the live construction site while the building is being restored. The solution also allowed bracing of the 65.5 m heritage facade while Shell House was completely gutted and upgraded, including demolition of its structural system.
