Load 28 was selected as the facade install contractor for the curtain wall & frameless glass

installation at the Flinders University Student Hub Project. The builder for the project was

Lendlease, and we are proud to report a successful install project for our client and the


The scope for the Flinders Hub project, was to provide all the access, lifting solutions and

installation of curtain wall products in a very tight and restrictive site. Fortunately Load

28 is best suited for this type of work,, with its extensive fleet of limited access cranes,

vacuum lifting technology and installation crew.

The scope of the project consisted of the setout and fitting of all frameless glass point fix

brackets, curtain wall brackets and associated flashings.

The project quantities can be defined as:

* 784m2 of Framless glass panels, consisting of 162 panels

* 1020 m2 of Curtain Wall Panel, consisting of 527 panels

The Load 28 installation and crane crew successfully installed all panels; safely, on time,

on budget and in accordance with the clients Quality Management System.

We are very proud of our achievement, as we challenged traditional install methodology

with our project management system and execution; to achieve a great outcome


Check out Load 28 Supervisor Luke showcasing our recent TC4 climb for valued client IJ Projects. Coordinated and focused, our amazing rigging team managed this lift so efficiently and safely.

This is not an easy project, as we are working with some close tolerances in the core, but true to Load 28’s innovative mindset, we designed a new chocking method to ensure we keep everything stable and safe throughout our climb. 


One should never underestimate the value and importance of positive client feedback.

Our TC3 went in the air successfully mid-March for our esteemed client Tandem Building Group for their 88 O’Connell Street project. 

The feedback we received: “The boys smashed it today mate. Awesome crew.” 
You can’t ask for much better than that!


PJC Construct utilised the services of Load 28 to assist them with the installation of their Tower Crane. We were engaged to service, repair, install and commission the crane and handover to PJC ready to operate. 

Our technical team worked hard to prepare the unit safely, and will continue to service and maintain the equipment for the duration of the project. 


We love working alongside our valued client Steamranger Heritage Railway.

Check out the video above to hear from Oliver at Streamranger discussing our recent lift of their 621 large steam locomotive at Mount Barker.

Using the power of our fleet, including our 230 ton Liebherr and our 130 ton Liebherr, we managed the job safely and efficiently. As Oliver says, the team from Load 28 worked “patiently” and “perceptively” and “listened to their needs really well”.

Well done lads. Collaboration and teamwork at its finest.
