Teamwork Pays Off For Leeds Crane Installation
On the weekend of 18th and 19th of May a 90 metre crane was installed on the site of the Olympian Homes student accommodation project, Altus House.
Altus House is an exciting student residence development located near to the Leeds Arena, on a very tight site that makes every element of the project a challenge. At 37 floors, the finished building will be the tallest building in Leeds, and the tallest student accommodation development in the North East of England.
The installation was a huge undertaking, particularly as it had to be complete by 10pm Sunday evening for the mobile crane to be off site and roads opened again. From the minute the 500 tonne mobile crane rolled onto site on Friday evening it was non-stop activity until the jib was hoisted up and bolted into place, the final piece of the jigsaw.
The whole installation team worked together to make the weekend a great success. Our thanks to JR Cranes and Ainscough who worked tirelessly to get the job done.
Altus House is scheduled to complete Summer 2021.
