Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in Hamilton

Our contract lifting solutions encompass a wide range of lifting services in which our experts can undertake responsibility for all aspects of the lift, from the initial risk assessment all the way through to final execution. At the initial planning stages, we typically use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. From there, we can then move onto the method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management. 

Where particularly complex or high risk lifts are concerned, we can even provide the option for a bespoke turnkey package that’s tailored to your exact requirements. All detailed planning is undertaken by our very own contract lift managers and specialist engineers here at Ainscough Crane Hire, so you can always have complete confidence to ‘Make the Safe Choice’.
