By drawing on the considerable pool of expertise that they can provide, we’re able to target all areas of a project, providing a truly unrivalled service on even the most complex or heavy lift in Thatcham.
Our contract lifting solutions refer to a range of services in which our experts can assume responsibility for every aspect of a project – from the initial consultation right through to final execution. We typically begin by using market-leading CAD software and BIM modelling to specify the exact requirements of the lift. This enables us to gather key information that we then use for the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
All detailed planning is undertaken by our very own experts here at Ainscough Crane Hire, so that you can always have the total confidence you need to ‘Make the Safe Choice’. If your project concerns a particularly high-risk or heavy lifts in Thatcham, we’re able to provide several of our services in the form of a single turnkey package, all tailored to your precise requirements and deadlines.
