SYM tower cranes build residential project in the heart of city
Three tower cranes are building more than just a residential district in Beijing, The 3 building, each with 20 floors, will comprise around 4,000 residential units, a day care centre, and much more. The area between the building will offer space for various recreational facilities such as parks and playgrounds.
Construction of the structures within the confined City Centre’s space is not easy, and the lifting equipment involved requires careful planning by SYM Tower Crane. “Jobsite conditions are such that several different types of tower cranes are necessary to accommodate the project’s needs for coverage, while also fitting as many cranes into the project as possible,” says LESTAT FENG, V.P. of the Tower Division for SYM Tower Crane.
Right after our crane division launched, one of SYM’s first tower crane projects came from a brand new customer.Our new client relied on our team to provide tower crane services in Turkey. The job was to safely set up and erect Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 Crane.
This 9.1-acre (3.7-hectare) city within a city project includes 5.4 million ft2 (501,676 m2) of office, residential, hotel, retail and entertainment space, giving a new meaning to urban living. It is estimated that the project will have a $1 million overall economic impact to the city, creating 3,700 direct jobs and 2,500 indirect jobs after construction is complete. Equally as important for the construction industry, the 3.5-year project – spanning from July 2012 to the end of 2015 – will add 1,700 construction jobs on average each year.
