University Of Adelaide’s Health & Medical Sciences (AHMS) Project

Feb 21, 2020 | Australian Glass Install

Australian Glass Install (AGI) was selected as the facade install contractor for the curtain wall & frameless glass installation at the University of Adelaide’s Health and Medical Sciences (AHMS) Project. The builder for the project was Lendlease, and we are proud to report a successful install project for our client and the builder.

The scope for the project, was to provide all the access, lifting solutions and installation of external glass in a very tight and restrictive site. This included:

• Main External Curtain Wall Façade

• All cassette glass frames glazed on stair frames in a remote location, so they could be trucked to site

• All glass frames on east and west edgescapes

• All shopfront glass on the lower floors 1,2,3.

• All internal ground floor glazing around the lecture theatres, including autobeam doors.

Fortunately AGI is best suited for this type of work, with its extensive fleet of equipment and installation crew.

The scope of the project consisted of glass installation for the building’s external façade as well as internal shopfront glazing for the ground floor – including the glass entry auto beam doors.

AGI installed 12,356m2 of glass, over 1,000 curtain wall panels, fitting 5,700 glass sunshades to the panels. Every panel is of a different sunshade colour, so we adopted a stringent QA system to manage this situation and ensure that every panel was launched from the building in the correct order.

This was completed incident free, on time and at a very high quality standard. The project came with a number of challenges as multiple coloured sunshades were fitted to the panel, in cases making the panel weight of 800kg.

AGI has a number of strong business systems, managing safety, schedule performance and quality. Our QA systems ensured that quality was maintained at a very high standard.


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.
