Our team comprises the most trusted and respected professionals in the industry, including teams of crane operators, contract lift managers, lift operatives and engineers, and health and safety officers.
The wealth of combined expertise these specialists provide allow us to target all areas of a project with planning and engineering services of the very highest quality – whether you require one-off mobile crane hire, industry-leading project management, or comprehensive contract lifting solutions in Ellesmere Port.
Our contract lifting solutions encompass a range of services in which we can undertake responsibility for all aspects of the lift, from the initial consultation right through to the final execution. At the initial design stage, we use market-leading CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. From there, we can also handle the 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 to undertake all detailed planning, and can also provide the option to choose several of our services in the form of a single bespoke turnkey package, which can be tailored to your exact requirements and schedule.
With the UK’s largest and most diverse fleet of cranes at our disposal, we have a wealth of experience in serving the following sectors:
• Petrochemical, oil and gas
• Power generation
Each of our diverse array of lifting services puts this wide range of mobile tower cranes, crawler cranes and heavy cranes at your disposal – they can be made available anywhere in the country, either as single units or as part of a multi-unit project. Whatever the nature or scale of your project, you can rely on Ainscough to deliver.
