Construction is underway on a new €5m ophthalmology outpatients department on a site adjacent to the existing BreastCheck premises on Infirmary Road, Cork city.

The Tower Crane on site for this project is our Saez TLS65B 10T City Tower Crane has a maximum range of 65m and max lifting capacity of 10,000kg.

This version of the TLS 65B has been structurally reinforced to achieve a higher load capacity. At the maximum radius of 65m, in 2 falls, it’s able to hoist up to 2,200Kg. In 4 falls, the maximum overall hoist is 10,000Kg, with 1,850Kg at maximum radius.

This crane, combined with reinforced tower sections, is engineered to support greater tensions and resistance to torsion, yet still achieves a freestanding height of 50m on S17 mast.

The new Ophthalmology Outpatients Department on Infirmary Road, Cork city, is expected to open in the second quarter of 2021 having been first mooted in 2011.
Construction is underway on a new €5m ophthalmology outpatients department (OPD) on a 0.12-hectare brownfield site adjacent to the existing BreastCheck premises on Infirmary Road, Cork city.
The 1,181sq m eye clinic, designed by Reddy Architecture and Urbanism, will cater for the relocation of ophthalmic services from Cork University Hospital (CUH) to the South Infirmary Victoria University Hospital (SIVUH).
The premises, a three-storey building to the front and single storey to the rear, is designed in a way that allows for a potential two-storey future expansion. It is expected to be completed in the second quarter of next year.

The development, located within lands owned by SIVUH, is part of a long-running reconfiguration of services agreed by the six acute hospitals in the South/South West Hospital Group as far back as 2011. Phase one of the relocation plan, the transfer of eye surgery to SIVUH, has already taken place.
The OPD project will include a new access ramp serving neighbouring BreastCheck and the new clinic. The ramp will be built in white brick, common material to the two buildings, along with a glass balustrade and continuous stainless steel handrails. The development will also lead to the realignment of footpath and cycleway to provide set down for taxis and public vehicles. The project does not involve any works to SIVUH itself, which is a protected structure.

    In 1999 when Mantis Cranes introduced the first self erecting crane to the Irish market, the Ma-sol 18 06 had a maximum lifting capacity of 1,500 kg. Fast forward to 2024 and the self erectors in the Mantis Cranes range now lift loads up to 6 T, with tower cranes lifting up to 24 T. Advancements in crane capabilities in response to changing customer requirements have resulted in a very different landscape for the crane hire industry.

    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.
