Crane Removed at Parfait at Atria

Crane Removed at Parfait at Atria

An Important Construction Milestone

Parfait at Atria hit an important construction milestone on Friday, October 18, 2019, with the removal of the on-site construction crane.

The removal of the crane means that all concrete has been poured and the majority of materials which require the construction crane to lift them into the building, such as windows and concrete, have now been brought up the tower.  It also means that completion of the building envelope is well underway.

One Crane Removes the Other

The Parfait construction team began preparing on Wednesday, October 16th, by bringing the mobile crane onto the site.  The mobile crane is used to remove the construction crane by lifting the permanent crane upwards from the roof of Parfait, one section at a time.  The crane is dismantled bit by bit, beginning with the cab where the operater sits, and the long arm, also known as the boom.  Once these sections are dismantled and removed, the crew then turn their attention to the tower of the crane.  It is a well coordinated process that requires much planning and preparation.
