It took over 12 hours for a 350 tonne mobile crane to erect a tower crane on the Rosenthal Project site at the end of June. The crane has a total tower height of 30 metres and 65 metre jib length.
The arrival of the crane signals that the end of excavation and retention works is near, with the Northern area expected to be completed in August.
Pad footings at the southern end of the site have commenced and soon the crane will be utilised to unload the various materials and equipment needed for the construction of the building’s structure, such as the formwork material, steel reinforcement, bricks and blocks, structural steel framing and plenty more.
The crane is expected to be in place for approximately 12 months, and will be removed by a mobile crane following completion of the structure.
