Edmonton’s Iconic Roxy Theatre Restoration assisted by Mammoet
Mammoet’s crews have successfully dismantled a tower crane on site that had lifted more than 1,000 cubic meters of concrete as part of the theatre restoration construction. The original Roxy Theatre was an iconic landmark of Edmonton, Alberta, and burnt down in 2015. The new Roxy is scheduled to open in November of 2021.
Teams were able to complete the crane removal in only three days throughout a weekend to reduce the traffic disruptions in the busy downtown core. Setting up the LTM1400 on one of the main roadways gave the team ample space to dismantle the tower crane, while the LTM1055 was also on-site to disassemble the pieces further and load them onto trucks to be transported off-site.
Mammoet was awarded this opportunity due to a longstanding good relationship with the tower crane provider. Depending on construction schedules in the area, the local Edmonton branch often completes a number of these dismantling projects each quarter. This year, in particular, has seen an increase in the first months of 2021.
David Barnes, General Foreman for Chandos Construction, said: “This project has some big challenges and some great rewards. Being a very tight site has made preplanning very important. Also, of course, bringing the Roxy back to the city is very rewarding. Mammoet is a great company to work with – very professional, with great service. For big lifts and when things must be done on schedule, Mammoet is always my choice.”
