Earlier this month we dismantled a Self Erecting Tower Crane on a Care Home Project in Andover following the completion of a 30-week hire.
The project, due to be fully completed in November 2016, involved the construction of a 66-bed care home including a dining area, kitchen, meeting rooms, manager’s office, staff room and refreshments. Additionally there was associated landscaping and parking. The main building is a three-storey structure in an L-Shape.
The Mantis 35.10 Self Erecting Tower Crane (SETC) that we erected on site had a jib length of 32m and a height under hook of 21.7m. It provided a maximum lift of 1,240kg at 32m. With the scaffolding on the project removed we were able to use a standard telehandler to remove the Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane from the site and return it to our Northamptonshire-based depot to prepare it for the next hire project.
Self Erecting Tower Crane on a Care Home Project Benefits
- Using an SETC on a a Care Home Project limits the noise pollution in the surrounding area which is important as these care homes are normally located close to residential areas.
- Site safety is significantly enhanced as there are less machinery movements, like forklifts, when an SETC is used on a project. There is also less chance of damage to scaffolding and other site machinery.
- Efficiency on your site is increased as the load is delivered directly to the point of work with minimal effort.
- An SETC can be placed on sites where space is somewhat restricted so, even though you might feel that a crane is not a viable material handling solution for your site, in most cases we can place a Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane on site if there is an adequate base available.
