Liebherr at home on the Capital city’s streets

The narrow and steep streets within the Wellington central business district present no obstacle for the Leibherr 350 tonne crane.

The flagship of the Titan Crane fleet showed its flexibility and capability to work in confined spaces during the placement of a tower crane on the new Sofitel Hotel site in Bolton Street at the beginning of April.

Titan Cranes General Manager Vaughan Clark organised job logistics which involved working with the Wellington City Council on planning the road closure and traffic management.

The steep terrain in Bolton Street required the use of extra matting to ensure a safe and stable work platform. The hours of work were restricted to allow access for businesses and residents of properties in Bolton Street and surrounding streets.

The job was successfully completed over a three day period.
