Modular Office Lift by Ainscough

Ainscough Crane Hire has worked with modular firm Integra Buildings Limited on the installation of new offices for CEMEX UK in Nottingham.

Integra is an award-winning UK manufacturer of innovative, off-site modular buildings, and was employed by CEMEX, the international building materials company, to install new offices at its Nottingham plant.

The large, high-quality anti-vandal units are designed with contemporary interiors, including superior heating systems, air conditioning and modern kitchen facilities.

The Ainscough team used a 150t crane with full ballast to lift the units into place. The procedure was relatively complex and required an eight-point lift, with all the requirements scoped out in advance by contract lift manager Stuart Vintin.

The lift programme was undertaken during the course of a single day over the late May bank holiday weekend and was delivered by James Ingham (crane driver), Peter Crogan (slinger) and Alan Smalling (supervisor).

James Needham, manager of Ainscough’s Nottingham depot said: “This lift included some complexities that were addressed through our advance planning. Once on-site, our team was able to work with Integra to ensure the operation was completed in a timely manner, enabling the site team to move on to the next stage of the project.

“Ainscough is currently working with many modular firms across the country, and we were pleased to once again to use our experience to enable efficient and safe operation.”
