Products Used

1x Minfor Winch, 100m rope,Test weights, Beam Clamps, Pulley blocks

The Challenge

BEST Construction remade sculpture which was to be installed and suspended from a dome 40 meters high, in sections during the night when the shopping centre was closed.

The Solution

Using a minifor winch and extra-long wire rope anchored at floor level, run over pulleys suspended from beam clamps, the sculpture sections were lifted position in the dome of the centre shopping. On collection of the equipment, use of the equipment was explained in full to our BEST staff which was an imperative service. On implementation, FLG's Services holistic approach provided all the necessary equipment for the lift.

The Results

The sculpture was installed and put in place safely according FLG Service’s Method Statement.

“Upon consultation and on contacting FLG Services, the immediate response put me at ease. Stuart from FLG Services arrived on site and asked me all the relevant questions, considering the public nature of this project, I needed a solution that was professional, and we certainly got that.  The quotation and method explanation arrived the next day. This was also a big help in preparation of the lifting plan and RAMS prior to the works. FLG Services equipment worked faultlessly, suggestions and experience not only organised the lift of the 21 pieces of ‘The Birth of Sky’ into place, but took a massive weight off our shoulders in the process.”
