Hoisting handlers

Dscn1091As rough-in nears completion at the upper levels of the hotel, air handling equipment needs to be placed for final hook-up.  This extending crane is wider then the alley- stabilizer feet push against a pipe bollard and the loading dock to stabilize the crain's boom as it raises the units almost fifty feet to the high roof...

Dscn1082Once the handler is picked from the pallette, the crain can rotate and extend to lift the unit to the roof.  This is a combination exhaust fan and make-up air unit that will pull smoky air from the third floor kitchen and replace the same volume of fresh air from outside.  It is tied into a hood over the twin ranges in the staff kitchen.
Dscn1084The crane is locally owned and operated- unfortunately, it is not large enough to lift the condenser for the basement handlers- we're looking at a variety of options for that 3500 lb. item including a massive crane and a freight helicopter.

Other work today includes pressure testing sprinkler pipe, installing showers in the ADA rooms, and moving the boilers into position.
