Student Accommodation Project in Leeds

In February we erected a Potain IGO50 on a Student Accommodation Project in Leeds.

The Self Erecting Tower Crane is due to be on site for a Tower Crane Hire period of at least six months. The project involves the construction of a steel frame building. When finished it will provide a five-level student residential building housing 130 studio flats for student accommodation, associated reception area, management office, gymnasium, study room, landscaping and access from ground level.
