Mantis 35.10 Self Erecting Tower Crane at the Beneavin Care Home Project

There is, at present, a Mantis 35.10 Self Erecting Tower Crane at the Beneavin Care Home Project in Finglas, Dublin.

Self Erecting Tower Cranes, like the Mantis 35.10, are ideal for Care Home Projects due to the ease of siting, cost effectiveness and the increased site safety that they provide. We have placed many Pedestrian Operated Tower Cranes on projects likes this across Ireland and the United Kingdom.

This project involves the enlargement of the existing elderly nursing care facility known as Beneavin Lodge by the addition of three storeys of specialist care residential accommodation.

The Mantis 35.10 is configured to provide a 1,000kg maximum capacity  load at the end of the 35m jib. Closer to the tower, and out as far as 12.05m on the jib, a maximum capacity load of 4,000kg can be accommodated. You can read more about this crane here.

As part of the enlargement minor alterations are being made to the dementia wing, which is already under construction. These alterations are designed to fully comply with the latest nursing home care standards as set out under HIQA accommodation guidelines and the requirements of the disability access legislation.

Additionally, at first floor level, a short term convalescent and respite care with en-suite bedroom accommodation, day space and a small cinema are planned to be added while the second floor level provision will be altered to provide for end of life palliative care suites with relatives rooms and support accommodation throughout all floors.

    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.
