Falcon Cranes & Alder Constructions are Building A New School

It has been a busy week here at Falcon Cranes; this week we installed our Potain MC85 Tower Crane onsite at Robina. We will be assisting our good friends Alder Constructions with the development of a new kind of school, introducing Arcadia College. 

Arcadia College is a brand new Special Assistance School, located at Robina on the Gold Coast. Arcadia college currently has another facility in Varsity Lakes that often works with students who have faced personal hardship and difficulties.

The new one of a kind campus designed by award winning Gold Coast Architects Burling Brown will be 3,000sqm and is located at Centerline Place, right next to the train station at Robina. It will increase the schools capacity to 300 students across its campus.

“The design is different from your traditional school; this futuristic learning environment will promote creativity while fostering inclusion and wellbeing,” – Trina Hockley, Board Chair of Arcadia College.

The college will consist of a three level multi-purpose educational building with progressive learning and recreation facilities, as well as a youth hub and much more.


How Falcon Cranes Are Helping

This week we installed our hammerhead Potain MC85 tower crane with the help of Universal Cranes 80T mobile slew crane.

Our tower crane can be operated from it’s remote control or by cabin. With a 45M jib capable of lifting 1.6T at maximum radius, this 25M high tower crane will make short work of this 4 story school.

Here at Falcon Cranes we take safety seriously – this is why on projects such as this, our cranes come installed with zoning systems to prevent slewing into unsafe areas. This helps to keep Queensland Rail next door happy, but it also keeps all of our workers safe.

Finally, Falcon Cranes will also be providing loading bays for materials handling and generator hire to assist with powering the site whilst site power is being established.

Arcadia College will add to Falcon Cranes existing broad portfolio of constructions projects throughout South East Queensland.

Arcadia College is currently accepting donations to assist Australian youth with issues such as suicide. To learn more or to make a donation, check out their website here
