City Summit Design and Construction
City Summit is more than just great climbing; we also specialise in building great climbing walls.
City Summit’s Design and Construction methodology creates a superior climbing experience while maximizing efficient use of labor and materials reducing overall costs. All design and construction of climbing walls by City Summit are engineer certified and are completed in accordance with the Australian Standards AS 2316.1-2009.
3D modelling of the proposed climbing solution allows for excellent client visualisation and input during the design process. This also allows for tangible quoting to assist budget requirements.
Designing and building a first class climbing product requires concise and collaborative consultation. This ongoing relationship commences from day one where you work with the City Summit Design Team to influence the look and feel of the climbing wall as it evolves as a 3D reality.
The City Summit Design Team will then incorporate design concepts to meet proven build efficiencies to provide a cost effective climbing solution. The 3D modelling not only provides excellent visualization of the project but also provides the shell behind which the engineered structure is designed.
3D modelling moves to Engineer testing and approvals; shop detailing and finally fabrication and construction of your climbing wall. Final Engineer testing and certification allows City Summit to provide a climbing surface or to provide a complete turn-key operation complete with route setting, climbing holds, ropes, safety
equipment, climbing equipment and floor safety.
Route setting services:
Just had a new wall built? Or have an old one not getting the use it should?
Route setting is a huge contributor to a climbing wall’s success and subsequent utilisation; good setting that is changed frequently will always result in higher use of a climbing wall.
Setting is an intuitive and creative process. City Summit’s extensive experience in climbing, general route setting and competition setting will provide the client with a variety of high quality climbing routes that include:
- Natural flow and ergonomic movement
- Routes set to target grades
- Enjoyable, challenging routes at every grade
- Routes that incorporate specific climbing skills and technique
- Body position and sequencing
- Efficient footwork and weight transfer
- Initiation of movement
All maintenance and safety reports are completed in accordance with the Australian Standards AS 2316.1-2009 and consist of but not limited to:
- Structural frame
- Access ladder and Safety Rails
- All climbing equipment and components
- Full testing report provided
