So begins the heavy lifting!
A tower crane is used in the construction of tall buildings and essential for building our Type 2 structure. This type crane can reach up to 265 feet, out to 230 feet, and lift a total of approximately 20 tons. Tower cranes are fixed to the ground during the construction period. A tower crane is always mounted over a strong concrete pad so that anchor bolts can be embedded into the pad, which holds the tower crane when it is lifting heavy loads.
