website creator Mini crane at Eureka! children's museum

Proving that GGR “nose” best when it comes to mini cranes, our team of lifting experts headed to Eureka! The National Children’s Museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire to help create a new gallery, which included the installation of a giant nose.

A 3 tonne capacity UNIC URW-506 mini spider crane was hired to lift loads weighing up to 600kg from the ground up onto the upper level where the “All About Me” gallery was being built. The £2.9m interactive exhibition features sculptures of body parts to teach children about anatomy.

The mini crane lifted body part sculptures and panels onto the balcony from the grass area outside the museum, working at a 7 metre radius and lifting to a 6 metre height. Using the UNIC mini crane meant that the installation could enjoy sweet smell of success as the job could be completed on time.

GGR’s mini spider cranes and lifting machines have worked at many museums all over the UK, including the National Maritime Museum, The Ashmolean Museum, Museum of Liverpool, Liverpool World Museum, Stratford Armouries Museum, Hunterian Museum, National Museum of Scotland and Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life.
