Our contract lifting solutions encompass a range of services in which our experts can undertake responsibility for every aspect of a project, from the initial consultation right through to the final execution. At the design phase, we typically use CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This gives us a solid basis of information which can then be used for the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
All planning and execution for these services is undertaken by our very own engineers and managers at Ainscough Crane Hire, allowing you to have complete confidence when you ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with contract lifts in Nottinghamshire.
