The 400 S. Hope Project in Los Angeles is well under way. Sky Rider’s crane, the TX50, was installed on its own scaffold to provide additional lifting height to clear the 20’ tall parapet. An existing davit was used for the assembly of the scaffold and crane. Track and other materials were later brought to the roof using this crane.
With the crane operational, installation of the track on the newly installed support structure was underway. The track installation includes an elevator which allows the Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) to be lowered for storage. Where necessary, a temporary davit support was welded to the support structure for lifting the track sections into place.
Follow the progress of the BMU installation on our Newsletter / Blog. We expect to have weekly updates. At the end of the project, we will have a web page dedicated to this project along with a downloadable PDF.
