City Tower Crane on an Office Project

Mantis Cranes recently erected a City Tower Crane on an Office Project at The Harcourt Centre in Dublin.

We provided an FM Gru 10-35 City Tower Crane as it was the Tower Crane which best suited the area available to erect and the point loadings that could be imposed upon the footpath. Additionally the crane provided a 1 tonne lift at 35m (2.5t at 16m).

Having been installed over a couple of days, the crane will be on site for an approximate hire period of six months.

City Tower Crane in Dublin Project Details

This model has been extensively used on restricted space projects on city centre sites across Ireland and The United Kingdom.
The Project involves adding extra floor space on the fourth level and an additional fifth level (sixth storey) to the existing structure on Harcourt Street; close the Dublin’s City Centre. The project includes relocating the existing plant, along with a new plant, on the roof level of the, soon to be, six-storey building.

The new development will increase the overall floorspace in the office block by almost 500 sq.m.
