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)
