Tower Crane on the City Quay development in Dublin

Recently our service team hit the waterfront where they erected a Tower Crane on the City Quay development in Dublin.

This particular crane is an FM GRU 1035 Tower Crane which will be working for roughly around 12 weeks on the project. The project itself is a Grade A office development overlooking the River Liffey. This means once complete, the building will be in one of Dublin’s prime and most sought after locations.
