Wagenborg Nedlift ESTA Award Winner for 6th Consecutive Year
For the sixth year in a row, Wagenborg Nedlift has won an ESTA award! Yesterday evening in München, during ‘ESTA’s Users Night 2019’, the ESTA jury announced the winners. Wagenborg Nedlift won the award in the category ‘Innovation/Development’ for the project ‘OCC The Hague’. In cooperation with Bomecon Construction Equipment, Wagenborg Nedlift had developed an innovative and practical solution to overcome the challenges presented by the project.
The construction consortium Cadanz has been working hard in the city center of the Hague since 2017 on the new Education and Culture Complex; the Onderwijs- en Cultuurcomplex (OCC), . Wagenborg Nedlift, as lifting services provider for Cadanz, was requested to offer a solution for positioning the 50 (!) extraordinarily designed facade columns with various dimensions and weights.
Because of the thickness and the relatively low reinforcement inside the columns, it was impossible to bring the columns in an upright position with a normal lifting operation. Therefore, Wagenborg Nedlift asked Bomecon Construction Equipment to cooperate on the design and development of a special lifting frame. This cooperation resulted in a safe and practical lifting frame, suitable not only for the safe lifting operations of the facade columns, but also for winning awards!
