It has been a busy period for lifting specialist Britlift as its services are in high demand in the modular and offsite construction sectors
2018 proved a successful year for Britlift in the offsite construction sector as a number of new clients came on board involved in the manufacture of modular buildings and bathroom pods for both residential and commercial use. This has resulted in eleven Britlift beams being used, starting in February 2019, to lift modules on to the world’s tallest modular building, 101 George Street, developed by Tide Construction and Vision Modular Systems UK in London, which will be a huge 44 storeys and 38 storeys of modules across the two towers.
During the course of 2018, Britlift was involved in supplying lifting equipment to 12 offsite projects and secured two long-term clients using Britlift as their ‘go-to’ lifting equipment specialist.
2019 has seen a further four offsite manufacturing projects supplied to, including securing two further returning clients. Project requirements included a six-point, 34-tonne complete lifting system (including all rigging) for site use; a 25-tonne adjustable lifting frame for use with an RTG; an eight-point, 12-tonne complete lifting system (including rigging); a 25-tonne adjustable lifting frame (including rigging) for use on site; 11-tonne and 12-tonne telescopic spreader beams with rigging and multiple bathroom pod lifting frames and rigging systems.
Britlift has carved a path into the offsite construction sector and has very quickly positioned itself as the number one specialist lifting equipment manufacturer to the offsite construction market.
Through the experience of past projects there isn’t much that Britlift hasn’t seen, considered, designed, manufactured or supplied in regards to lifting both modular buildings and bathroom pods, and it is this experience and expertise that will see further projects in 2019 supplied with Britlift lifting equipment.
As specialists in the sector, Britlift is your perfect partner when a system is required to take lifting stresses out of a fragile load and make the operation safer. Britlift equipment is designed with a vertical connection point to the load in order to remove stresses and ensure each module is lifted and installed safely.
Use the correct lifting equipment for your specific project, make sure it is CE marked and compliant with UK lifting legislation and use a specialist such as Britlift to design and build the right system that suits your project needs.
