This beautiful steel leopard was created by internationally acclaimed sculptor Andy Scott was lifted into position by a 10 tonne capacity UNIC URW-1006 spider crane.

“Poised” is made from small galvanized steel pieces welded together to create a shimmering mosaic effect. After 12 months of work in the artist’s studio, the magnificent leopard sculpture took just two days to install thanks to the hard-working installation team and GGR Group’s mini crane.

GGR Leopard LiftThe leopard was delivered in three separate pieces, which the crane lifted into place on the ground to be fixed together. Once the 4.8 metre tall leopard was complete, the UNIC mini crane safely lifted the 2.2 tonne sculpture up onto a 10 metre column.

The UNIC spider crane proved to be the ideal piece of equipment for installing the leopard sculpture as it could move through restricted access areas and lift to the required height from its position to safely lift the sculpture into place.
