HANGING GLASS WALKWAY, DELOITTE BUILDING, LONDON
Unlike modern cities, with their broad, grid-pattern streets, London is an historic capital with narrow, winding roads and densely packed buildings. This makes any construction work difficult, with lifting work, taking place in between the capital’s tall buildings, a real challenge. Achieving a safe, secure lift, in narrow confines with tall structures either side, takes real skill and experience – which is exactly what LGH are known for across the construction industry.
Bronzeshield were required to carry out a full contract lift at the Deloitte buildings to install a glass walkway between two of their buildings in Central London, to facilitate access between the two departments and avoid staff having to go outside in all weathers.
The walkway weighed 50tonnes and had to be lifted in a very tight space between the two buildings, without the upper slings interfering with either structure and compromising the lift.
To complicate matters, the lift was scheduled for a weekend and involved road closures, so it had to be right first time. Furthermore, the load would need to be accurately levelled on the ground before being suspended for 4-5 hours while the walkway was correctly located and fixed to the structures on either side.
LGH worked in close collaboration with Operations Director, Bill Stanworth, from Bronzeshield, along with Andrew Finch from W Finch & Co and Seele UK.
The client initially requested an 8m bespoke lifting beam with a 6m upper centre, however, the team from LGH used their experience and expertise to come up with an even better alternative.
LGH provided Bronzeshield with an 8m x 2m CMOD110 lifting frame, fitted with special top slings to achieve the clearances required between the buildings, coupled with four 20t manual chain blocks to balance the load and achieve levelling before the lift. The total weight of the equipment used was 4.5t.
“Expert planning and innovative design, in advance of the lift, ensured that the walkway was lifted using Bronzeshield’s flagship Liebherr LTM1500 crane and our equipment, exactly as required on the day, maintaining its level, and held firm while it was anchored into place.”
