Crane installed at roof level, 68 King William Street
Luffing Tower Crane now erected and operational at 68 King William Street - fantastic milestone in the construction of the Roof Top Bar and Restaurant Extension just above Monument Tube Station.
The Luffing crane has been installed at roof level (9 stories) on a temporary structural steel grillage connected to the existing building steel frame. The grillage and luffing crane were lifted into position using a 350-ton mobile crane which in itself was erected with a smaller slave crane at street level.
A huge thank you to our partners on this installation - Plant and Engineering Services, Falcon Tower Crane, Bronzeshield, Inner City Scaffolding, Metro Traffic Management, Transport for London, Orbit Architects, Total Project Integration and A1 Site Surveys.
