Crane on a Centre Parcs Project

Our service team in Northampton last week placed a crane on a Centre Parcs Project at Elveden Forest.

The Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane, a Potain HDT80, is one of largest and most popular cranes on our hire fleet due to the ease it can be inserted on site and the efficiency that it provides. This model allows a height under hook of 34.2m at the end of the 45m jib. A maximum lift of 1,250kg is available at the end of the jib.

The Self Erecting Tower Crane will be working on an apartment block for the next few months. The development also includes a  48-bedroom hotel and a 51-bedroom hotel with 99 bedrooms, four three-bedroom water lodges, nine three-bedroom executive lodges, energy centre and the extension of an existing Starbucks cafe to create a pottery workshop.

    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.
