Glenbeigh Construction

Glenbeigh Construction were awarded the contract for the Harbour Road development, due to their excellent track record in delivering residential type projects to a high standard of quality. This development presented challenges due to the narrow access roads and site restrictions designed to remain sensitive to the needs of the nearby school and church.

Glenbeigh Construction selected Mantis Cranes as the provider of tower cranes for this site. The excellent partnership between the two teams contributed to the swift and successful erection of the crane. The crane will remain on site for the duration of the build which is expected to take 12 months. Mantis Cranes look forward to working with Glenbeigh Construction on many future projects.
