City Lifting provide lifting solution at Castle Rising Castle in Norfolk

City Lifting are pleased to have recently assisted at the very historic ‘Castle Rising Castle’ in Norfolk by providing a lifting solution with our Bocker RK36.

This exciting project was requested by Lord Howard (the owner of the castle) and the English heritage who wanted to replace an internal elevated pedestrian walkway. It is the perfect example of a job that only a Bocker RK36 could handle. With the need to track across a small arched bridge that is over 800 years old, our 4.5t Bocker RK36 was the only crane that was light enough to do this, whilst also having enough reach and capacity for the lifting of the replacement 8m long steel beams.

The whole lifting operation took 6 hours to complete from arrival on site to pulling out the gate. Our tracked Bockers are available for a contract lift such as this one or as a CPA hire with us supplying a driver and delivery on our own transport.

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.
