220T Faun is the solution to the problem

City lifting had an enquiry to look at installing two new steel frame staircases inside an enclosed courtyard in Bow E3. The radius that the steels and glass where having to be installed at was greater than 60m meaning a very large crane to be situated in the road for the duration of the works.

Instead of this we had come up with the solution of lifting over a 706 Unic spider crane and a small 10t city crane into the courtyard with our 220t Faun Mobile telescopic crane so that the work could be completed over two weeks from inside site. This has not only saved money on the huge council costs to close the road but also the daily hire of the Unic 706 and 10t City kato was below half of the cost of a 220t mobile to be situated for two weeks on site. All of the materials to complete the project were lifted over into site on the same day so that the 220t mobile crane was only required on two occasions in total.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with City Lifting on the day. Your team was spot on.

Following on from the hire you completed for us on Friday last week, could you please pass on my thanks to your team, whom according to our client did a fantastic job on the night at London bridge. It is always good to hear nice reports from Principal and Subcontractors alike.
