A UNIC URW-506 mini spider crane has been hired to install partition doors at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield. The institute helps elite athletes to improve their performance using the very best in science, medicine, technology and engineering. Like GGR, the institute aims to deliver the best package of support, delivered by the best people in the best possible environment.
The 3t capacity URW-506 compact crane has a 16m maximum lifting height which made it ideal for lifting the doors from the ground floor of the stadium to their installation point on the first floor. The radio control function and safe load indicator on this versatile machine meant that the 300kg, 4m long doors were lifted easily and safely. This mighty crane retains the compact dimensions, it fits comfortably through a double doorway, that make UNIC mini spider cranes world leaders for lifting where access is restricted.
The English Institute of Sport team are behind many of Britain’s most successful athletes. In the London Olympic cycle the institute worked with 86% of Team GB’s athletes and all of those that won medals in the 2012 Games. GGR put in a lot of work behind the scenes before the start of the London 2012 Games too with jobs on the Olympic Stadium, the Velodrome, the Aquatics Centre, and the Athletes’ village all getting the GGR treatment.
