A complex construction
The north tower of the Château de Pondres was the first to be entwined by these wooden medieval constructions, necessary to guarantee the security of the workers working on the facades of the Castle.
The installation of these scaffolds required the intervention of large cranes and the margin of maneuver in which not to touch the main structure could not exceed 5 cm! A meticulous work despite the imposing size.
The transfer of these imposing structures of solid wood from one side of the castle to the other required the intervention of cranes. It took the utmost concentration of the field workers to be able to carry out this delicate maneuver.
The crane operator had no visibility on the inner courtyard of the castle where it was necessary to place certain pieces, he had to rely on communication by walkie talkie with the construction site boss to follow procedure. The margin of maneuver was not more than 5 cm, attention and concentration at all times was necessary to carry out this operation.
