Challenge

Moving three HVAC units weighing 12,500lbs each, in challenging windy and snowy winter weather conditions, with heavy materials that are also technologically sensitive to upper stories or rooftop destinations. The project included adding a seventh manufacturing line and a new cleanroom facility. Due to the roof’s location, this was inaccessible using traditional crane methods.
