Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in Dumfries

Our contract lift solutions encompass a wide range of services in which we can undertake all aspects of the lift, right from the initial design phase. At this point, we use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift, compiling vital information for the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.

We use our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers for all this detailed planning, so that you can always have total confidence to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. And if your project involves a particularly heavy or complex lift in Dumfries, we can even provide several of these services in a bespoke, turnkey package that’s tailored to your exact requirements and deadline for each individual project.
