Project Outcome:

Dedicated, sameday transportation and on-site positioning of large scientific instrument (250x120x170cms / 1200kgs) to third floor via crane and scaffolding.

Project Timeframe:

One day.

Project Delivery:

Site survey was completed in advance and RAMS produced for the University including scaffolding and crane certificates and insurance details. Scaffolding was erected the day prior to the delivery and a 50t crane scheduled at 10am. The equipment was collected on the evening prior to the delivery and a three man crew transported the instrument to site the following morning, arriving at 9am. The crew commenced to unpack the instrument and prepare it for the lift. Two crew members went to the third floor of the building and attached harnesses to secure themselves. The third man in conjunction with the banksman proceeded to secure the instrument to the crane slings and spreader bar that was employed to ensure that the instrument was not crushed. The instrument was then raised and lowered on to the scaffolding platform. The slings were disconnected and the crew placed scoots onto the instrument to help manoeuvre it. The instrument was then wheeled into the building, along a 100m corridor and placed within the lab. All packaging materials were removed from site by our crew. The scaffolding was schedule to be dismantled the day after the delivery and this was completed as planned.

Project Outcome:

Due to the precise planning and the implementation of same the instrument was positioned within the timeframe allocated for the process. Customer engineers were able to commence commissioning the instrument on the same day and had the instrument operating within 24hrs of its successful positioning.
