The Clock Building in Ås, Norway

An unusual challenge which will soon be completed.


Currently Statsbygg [the Public Services Agency] has many buildings under restoration in Norway and has successfully employed weather protection on some of these. When the largest building in Norway had to be restored, Skanska Norge’s subcontractor, UCO, contacted HAKI because of their long experience on large buildings – which include the Royal Palace.

We took up this challenge in HAKI and worked closely with UCO to reach a solution. A canopy 32 metres wide and 73 metres long with a polygon profile was set up, using only original HAKI parts, of which the client had plenty in store. The polygon itself was 13 metres high and the total height up to the canopy ridge line was about 29 metres. The total surface area of the canopy was therefore over 3000 square metres.

The construction itself had to withstand the estimated conditions, so the main challenge was therefore the supports between the scaffolding and the building. This was met by setting up transverse stays in four locations in the building to which HAKI contributed with the detail for a solution suitable for HAKI scaffolding.

Because of the large loading factors, Statsbygg was not fully aware of the likely ground pressures around this valuable building and so estimates with details for weight distribution had to be calculated and allowed for.

In collaboration with UCO, we are currently taking on some of Norway’s most challenging temporary canopy requirements. This requires skilled engineers and builders, the right materials, and erectors with close attention to compliance with specification details.

UCO is taking on increasingly greater challenges in which they are fully engaged on new projects in collaboration with HAKI.  Some of these will be featured in future on our website.
