This week we were very happy to coordinate this tight access ‘lift and drop’ operation, at a commercial site in Broadway, London.
There were 3 x 8.4tonne chiller units which we had the task of delivering and manoeuvring into the basement of the building. We achieved this using our own pre-fabricated bespoke lifting accessories, along with equipment such as a difficult to find 10tonne air hoist and also a power pusher.
To lift the units in the loading bay at street level, we first laid down road plates to reassure our client that the immense weight was spread evenly across the slab. We then slowly lowered them through the tight access hatch down into the basement, finally moving the chillers into their places within the plant room.
Jobs like this require careful planning and specialist experience, in order to organise the safest and most efficient equipment needed, something we pride ourselves on at Mechanical Movements.
