Innovative aerial service provider Erickson Incorporated successfully conducted 13 chiller equipment lifts to the top of the JPM Chase building in Belleville, MI, in just two-and-a-half hours, allowing Conti Corporation to cut installation time dramatically. Erickson’s placement lifts saved time on the ground and also saved labor costs, because they were much more efficient than standard ground-based methods.
To prepare for such an extensive HVAC lift and placement project, Erickson operators worked with Conti project managers for three months, with an initial site visit in February to determine lift sequence, rigging, and clearance for crews to enter JPM Chase property. On the morning of March 28, Erickson’s S-64F Aircrane and crew arrived at the site. The chiller components were previously prepared and stagedin the parking lot next to the helicopter landing and fueling zone where Erickson and Conti managers had established a direct flight path to the rooftop to minimize flight time.
