Setback Towers

Simple Solutions to Complex Problems

A building’s design and geometry can be challenging for providing efficient hoist installation locations. To meet those challenges UBS can provide common platforms and setback towers that allow you to place your hoist on-site where it is best suited for truck access, material, and manpower while providing access to all floor levels. This can be accomplished regardless of changing building profiles or building setbacks on upper floors. 

Through the use of transfer steel on the upper setback, UBS was able to erect a large setback structure on the upper floors of the building. Setback structures help maintain an efficient construction schedule under many varying conditions including tight footprints with space restrictions. In the case of One Wall Street it was necessary to get the hoist setback tower off the street to maintain an open lane for fire trucks.
