Hutchinson Builders engaged Falcon Cranes to supply tower cranes and crew for the Park Ridge project in Noosa Springs over the space of 15 months from October 2018 to February 2020.
The Stage 2 projects involved the construction of 5 individual 4 storey accomodation structures spaced over 200 metres of site and all built concurrently. Two Potain tower cranes were employed on this Stage, TC1 was a Potain MCT85 on remote control and TC2 a Potain MC85 controlled from a cabin. The decision to utilise different operation methods of the cranes assisted with site demands and managing a busy delivery channel for all incoming goods.
Whilst Stage 2 was in full swing, Hutchinson Builders commenced Stage 3 at Park Ridge with 4 individual accomodation structures, again all constructed concurrently. With a different site layout to Stage 2, a larger centrally located Comansa CJ140 was employed for this Stage. With the increased fleet requirement onsite across the two stages, Falcon’s onsite crane crew reached six members at its peak and all members were both reliable and committed to maintaining safe work practices
The team at Falcon Cranes handled every aspect from the erection and dismantle of cranes, the organisation of labour, crane maintenance and servicing and safety management with professionalism and reliability.
From the planning stage to the erection and day to day running of the three cranes I have found Falcon Cranes to be very organised and easy to deal with. I would not hesitate in recommending Falcon Cranes to any builder looking for a safe, reliable and cost effective tower crane provider.
