When the Irving Lumber Mill in Dixfield, Maine, needed cleaning and upgrading, they were faced with multiple challenges. The machines needed to continue producing hundreds of thousands of board feet daily; the irregularly-braced rafters were 50 feet above the work floor; and there were no current as-built drawings on which to base an access plan.
By using high-definition laser scanning technology to provide accurate images and measurements for engineering, however, and a rigid suspended access system to create safe, factory-floor-like working conditions above the mill floor, the project was efficiently and safely completed.
“With the right equipment, and a skilled set-up crew, the mill’s production never skipped a beat.”
