Self Erecting Tower Crane on a new Apartment Block in Hounslow

Recently our tower crane service team installed a Self Erecting Tower Crane on a new Apartment Block in Hounslow. 

The project is an office conversion containing studio apartments and one bedroom apartments. New residents of Central House will enjoy private, double-height entrance foyers and lift cores to each block, whilst the ground and first floor contain spacious and secure car parking. 

When the project was first announced back in 2014, David Galman, the Sales Director at Galliard Homes, said: “The apartments are in the heart of Hounslow town centre and will be reasonably priced to attract either end user buyers looking for a West London home; pied-a-terre purchasers or investors. The Hounslow housing market is very competitively priced and we anticipate strong demand from both investors and end user buyers.” (read more here)

The Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane that we installed on this job is a Potain IGO50, one of the most popular cranes on our Tower Crane Hire Fleet. It has been erected with a 36m jib and provides a maximum lift of 1,000kg at the end of that jib. The maximum capacity of the Tower Crane is 4,000kg that can be provided from the Tower out as far as 13m on the jib.

    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.
