Potain IGO50 Self Erecting Tower Crane on an Apartment Complex

We currently have a Potain IGO50 Self Erecting Tower Crane on an Apartment Complex project in Notthingham.

This project involves the construction of 18 one bedroom apartments over a three-storey building, along with two 2-bedroom houses. The site is the location of the, now closed, Grove Public House. The development is located on a busy junction. This is part of a scheme to provide more social housing by Gedling Borough Council.

Potain IGO50 Self Erecting Tower Crane on an Apartment ComplexMantis Cranes placed the Potain IGO on site providing a maximum lift of 1 tonne at 40 metres and a height under hook of 23.2m. This model of Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane was ideal for the project as it can operate on a site with restricted access while maintaining the ability to deliver heavy loads directly to the point of work – without affecting local traffic or reducing site safety.

Self Erecting Tower Crane Advantages

  • Increased safety due to less machinery movements on site
  • Delivery of the load directly to the point of work
  • Quicker installation and dismantling times than other material-handling solutions, resulting in less disruption to other work on site
  • Able to operate safely in restricted areas

    When restoring historic buildings, care must be taken to preserve these buildings for future generations. Cranes play a crucial role in this process and provide the necessary means of material handling, access, precision, and safety required to carry out restorations without causing additional damage. Over the years, Mantis Cranes have been involved in a number of iconic projects in some recognisable places that involved considerable planning not just to put the crane in place but also for the daily management of materials handling.
