About Highrise

Highrise Building Services began in Victoria in 1990 and was set up initially as a scaffold company, which it still operates in Victoria. As public protection over footpaths became more sophisticated, and required more versatility from that of the standard scaffold coveredways, Highrise developed its own gantry system using structural steel components, enabling greater spans and loads. This led to the beginnings of Highrise Gantries.

Over the last eighteen years Highrise have refined their system to what it is today, and major commercial builders in Victoria welcomed this innovative design, and it has now become widely used across all of Melbourne. Builders as reputable as Brookfield Multiplex, Bovis Lendlease, L.U Simon, Grocon, Equiset, Hamilton Marino, Walton, Kane and the Hacer Group along with many other major builders regularly use our services.

Highrise is also expanding our services heavily into the entertainment industry and have now provided various works at events as exclusive as, the Australian Open Tennis, The Presidents Cup, The Melbourne Cup Carnival, The Australian Grand Prix, Gold Coast Marathon and many other major functions and corporate events.

Five years ago a major Brisbane builder, desperate for a gantry system that could support scaffolding, and site accommodation, sought our services, and engaged us to supply a large gantry on their project in the Brisbane CBD. We answered their request, and transported the gantries from Melbourne to Brisbane where our tradesmen then erected the gantries around two elevations of this major development, and there it remained for two years. So pleased was the builder, they then had another gantry supplied only months later on another major project.

Naturally once our gantry was seen by others, the phones began to ring, and we saw the potential of our product for use here in Brisbane, thus we decided to stay and set up a storage facility about two years ago. Since then we have been continually active in erecting and dismantling our gantries for builders in and around Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Our clients here in Qld include Grocon, Laing O’Rourke, Hutchinson Builders, Glenzeil, Thiess and Matrix just to name a few. So you can see that our system is widely used in the construction industry, and our web site will give you more insight if needed, as to our company’s credentials.
