Case Studies

Car Park Drainage Lift, Cheshire

MGA Cranes were commissioned by Foxhall Construction to lift a fully assembled drainage system into a car park in Tarporley, Cheshire, and lower and manoeuvre it into position. MGA Cranes supplied a crane to help lift the drainage system, but other specialist lifting equipment was needed to ensure that it was safely attached and that the lift was completed safely without any damage to the expensive drainage system.

Cinema Complex and 5 Restaurants

Wates site engineers outlined to FLG Services that there were two void spaces across the floor, one either side of the main opening used for loading and unloading, which meant that no heavy equipment could be placed in those areas.

Development of Innovative New Lifting Solutions

The FLG Service Centre in Glasgow assisted Amey Highways to help solve a problem associated with lifting heavy kerbs from the back of small trucks. Previously, kerbs were lifted with a small crane and manually handled into position, but Amey Highways were seeking an alternative which would both enhance Health and Safety for operatives and improve productivity.
