Our contract lifting solutions encompass a range of services in which we can take on responsibility for all aspects of the lift, from the initial consultation all the way through to final execution. At the initial design phase, we typically use CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This gives us a solid grounding from which we can then move on to the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
All this detailed planning is undertaken by our very own specialist engineers and contract lift managers here at Ainscough, so we can always guarantee a truly unrivalled service. We can also deliver several of our services in a single, bespoke package – one that’s tailored to your exact requirements and schedule.
