Evolving Workshop Technologies’ demonstrated further innovation by adapting the elevating work platform (EWP) to an orchestra pit for an NSW grammar school in 2014. This was a relatively simple process as each platform is custom designed and engineered to suit either an existing or new pit and the individual workshop requirements.  Of course, being re-purposed from a workshop environment to an orchestra, a new set of regulations had to be adhered to.

The orchestra pit platform has proved very reliable and easy to operate.  Servicing is very fast and simple.
