Erection and Dismantling (E&D) Department
We are, as a team, responsible for ensuring the safe erection and dismantling of the tower cranes on site and their transportation to and from our Yard. This incorporates collating weather reports, implementing road closures and liaison with local authorities and traffic management companies, arranging all necessary labour, transportation and mobile craneage for the tower cranes to be dismantled/erected.
This is done through high quality technical design concept and layout drawings, the production of foundation forces, bespoke tie & bracing details and communication with the manufacturers, site base designers & engineers.
The team consists of (from left to right): Daniel Nickalls - CAD Technician, Nick Hurrell - Associate Technical Director, and Carl Patterson - Technical Assistant.
As the service department we are responsible for ensuring the safe maintenance and running of all the cranes once erected and until dismantled (this being around 350 cranes). This entails carrying out regular 8 weekly services, yearly bolt checks, yearly load tests and arranging the 6 monthly external thorough examinations. Any breakdowns that may arise are also rectified within the service department, some of these rectified over the phone and the others are rectified by the engineers which we arrange to attend sites. With all these aspects, paperwork is required and as a department we maintain hard and digital copies of all paperwork along with keeping many logs to keep track of the individual crane history.
As a department we also maintain the running of the vehicle fleet of vans and cars which is around 100 vehicles. This includes MOTs, service, accidental damage and any remedial work required.
