Co-ordination with third parties
ALE’s ability to provide innovative and specially-tailored heavylifting solutions enabled them to provide an alternative lifting solution to raise a roof section, weighing 400t (441 US t), for an amphitheatre in Milwaukee, USA.
There was minimal space available at the site, so ALE devised a jacking solution using eight strand jacks to lift a section of the roof. Utilising their global resources and engineering expertise, ALE modified existing beams to specially adapt them for use as outrigger beams on the heavylifting project. The strand jacks operated simultaneously to gradually lift the roof section to a height of almost 20m (65 ft).
